Chinese Movie Night Successfully held at the Confucius Classroom at the USP Cook Islands Campus 

为增进库克群岛人民对中国这一遥远国度的了解,南太平洋大学孔子学院库克群岛孔子课堂于2017年6月3日在校区大教室举办了中国电影晚会,给当地居民带来了一场别开生面的文化娱乐体验活动。本次电影晚会播放两部电影,第一部是《大圣归来》(英语版),第二部是《捉妖记》(汉语版配英语字幕)。

离电影放映还有45分钟时就已经有30多人到场等待了。开始播映后观众的反应更是高潮迭起,时而爆发出孩子们的欢叫声,时而又全场寂静,屏气凝神。观众们被中国传统故事的传奇色彩深深吸引,更惊异于中国影片制作的精良以及中国风景的优美。

每场电影播放结束后,观众都报以热烈的掌声以示谢意,并纷纷询问“下周还有中国电影吗?”“下一次什么时候还播放中国电影?”

电影晚会吸引了库克群岛当地居民及中小学学生150多人到场观看,占不足万人的拉罗汤加岛人数的1.5%。是一次非常成功的中国文化体验和推广活动。

To promote the understanding of China to the Cook Islanders, which is live more than 10,000 km away from China, the Confucius Classroom at the USP Cook Islands held a Chinese Movie Night on 3rd of June, 2017, giving to the local people a spectacular experience of Chinese culture. Two movies were chosen, the first one was “Monkey King: Hero Is Back (in English)”, and the second one was “Monster Hunt” (in Chinese with English subtitles).

More than 30 people were waiting in the big classroom 45 minutes ahead of the scheduled time. The audiences enjoyed the movie very much, they sometimes cheered loudly and other times all quiet and holding their breath. Audience were deeply attracted by the legendary of Chinese traditional stories. They were also amazed by the Chinese filmmaking arts and the beautiful sceneries of China.

At the end of each movie, there was a warm applause from the audience. Many expressed their thanks and asked "Will there be a movie next week?" and "When can we have another movie night?".

The Movie Night attracted 150 local people, which takes up to 1.5% of the total population in Rarotonga. This was an exceptionally successful Chinese culture experience and promotion activity in the Cook Islands.
