The Archeological Film Show was opened on October 15th, 2018 in the Museum of Republic of Srpska in Banja Luka with the Chinese archaeological film "Art in the Caves of the Province of Gansu".


The province of Gansu, located in the northwestern part of China, is the cradle of Chinese civilization. This film shows only a part of the artwork that was found in the caves of western China, which has been preserved and has become an extremely rare and valuable legacy.
