BRINGING KING TO CHINA

2011 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Kevin McKiernan, Cáitrín McKiernan

After a long career covering wars for ABC News, director Kevin McKiernan (Good Kurds, Bad Kurds) turns the camera on his grown daughter Cáitrín as she attempts to produce a play about Martin Luther King, Jr. in China. Her quest to build a bridge between countries threatens to fall apart over political and cultural clashes. Collaborating with acclaimed cinematographer Haskell Wexler (Medium Cool), McKiernan brings a personal touch to global issues.
