This is London’s premiere screening brought over especially by Van Gulik’s granddaughter Marie-Anne Souloumiac -Van Gulik from the Netherlands for the First London International Guqin Festival. Robert van Gulik (1910-1967) is one of the world’s most popular Dutch writers, but relatively unrecognised in his own country. A diplomat, Chinese specialist and scholar, he became famous with his detective series about Judge Dee, which in many ways, are projections of his own life: a permanent duality between his real life and the hero in his books.
Registration is required. Fee: £8 (standard), £5 (concessions), £4 (SOAS students). ONLINE REGISTRATION
This film screening is part of the The First London International Guqin Festival 2018.
