In conjunction with UCL Festival of the Arts 2015, Ming-Ai (London) Institute and UCL China Centre for Health and Humanity hosted a screening of the award-winning documentary When China Met Africa (2011), as part of the Thinking Chinese exhibition activities (2015). This observational documentary explores China's influence in the continent through the stories of three individuals in Zambia.
