The Big Screen Project is pleased to present The New Grand Tour, a documentary edited by James Helton that chronicles the travels of Suitman (aka Young Kim), Jose Parla, Romon Kimin Yang, Deanne Cheuk and Davi Russo as they embark on a journey through China and engage in a cultural exchange that impacted their life and work forever.
Beginning on October 20, 2007, Young Kim was joined by Deanne Cheuk, JoséParlá, Rey Parlá, Rostarr and Davi Russo for thirteen days of travel in the Far East. They began in Shanghai heading for the remote Yunnan Province, in search of the mystical city of Shangri la. With James Hilton’s novel, Lost Horizon as their guide, their journey took them through the beautiful valleys, rivers and lakes between the border of Yunnan Province and Tibet, through the Mei Li Snow Mountains and eventually to Beijing. While on this journey, each artist created new works within their respective medium, inspired by the places they visited during their travels.
The Big Screen Project is located adjacent to the Public Plaza behind the Eventi Hotel, 6th Avenue b/w 29th and30th street.
