Maineland (NR)

Filmed over three years in China and the U.S., "Maineland” is a multi-layered coming-of-age tale that follows two affluent and cosmopolitan teenagers from China as they settle into a boarding school in blue-collar rural Maine.

Part of the enormous wave of "parachute students” from China enrolling in U.S. private schools, bubbly, fun-loving Stella and introspective Harry come seeking a Western-style education, escape from the dreaded Chinese college entrance exam, and the promise of a Hollywood-style U.S. high school experience. In one sleepy Maine town, worlds collide as students, fresh from China, learn to navigate the muddy waters of this microcosmic global village.

Following the film, there will a discussion with several of Lincoln Academy’s resident students.

Running time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
