Films, including documentaries, have done much to shape American and Chinese perceptions of each other. Beginning in 2006, USC and Beijing Communication University of China launched a program to have student filmmakers collaborate in exploring Los Angeles and Beijing. Each summer since then six students from one school have traveled to the other school and spent summer working with their counterparts to produce short documentaries on Los Angeles and Beijing as global cities. See samples of these films as Professor Mark Jonathan Harris, a three-time Oscar-winner for best documentary film and a Professor at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and students from USC present and comment the work following the screening.
