Synopsis:

Voices Carry is the moving autobiography of one of China's most prominent citizens of the twentieth century. Beginning with his imprisonment during the Cultural Revolution, Ying Ruocheng's narrative takes us through unexpectedly amusing adventures during his incarceration before flashing back to his childhood and the legacy of his elite Manchu Catholic family. An internationally renowned actor, director, and translator, Ying also held a high government post as vice minister of culture before and during the events in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Detailing his experiences in the 1930s and 1940s during China's civil war and revolution, as well as his theatrical work in the reform era-episodes ranging from his partnership with Arthur Miller on Death of a Salesman to his roles in the films The Last Emperor and Little Buddha-Ying Ruocheng's memoir provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes of contemporary Chinese culture and politics.
