On January 29, the film Curse of the Golden Flower directed by Chinese director Zhang Yimou was screened in the activity hall at night, which was widely applauded by the audience. It was the third martial arts film screened in this club following Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (directed by Ang Lee) on January 15 and House of Flying Daggers (directed by Zhang Yimou) on January 22. Three martial art films on three consecutive Thursday nights have fully showcased the charm of Chinese martial arts films to students of the Confucius Institute and local residents. So far, the film club has attracted more than 100 viewers.

Louis, a student from the Confucius Institute in Madrid, said, “I love Chinese Kung Fu as well as martial arts films. And I hope the Confucius Institute could present more such quality films.” Ana, a student from Autonomous University of Madrid, said, “I really like China and enjoy films. It is a fantastic experience to know about China and Chinese culture through watching Chinese films. I would love to watch some films on Chinese society.”

In order to present a panoramic view of traditional Chinese culture and modern Chinese society, the Confucius Institute in Madrid will continue to screen more Chinese films about the modern society, literature works, historic features and other aspects.
