This Wednesday, February 22, there is a free screening of the documentary Colonel Jin Xing. The film is about the former Chinese army colonel, now a transgendered woman and founder of China's first independent modern dance company. The 2001 documentary about her life tells the tale of how the Chinese man, born to Korean parents, became one of the few transgendered individuals recognized as such by the Chinese government. Colonel Jin Xing screens at 7 p.m. in the Regnier Auditorium on the KU Edwards campus. Admission is free, and the screening will be followed by a Q&A with Jin Xing herself. Jin Xing Dance Theatre performs "Shanghai Tango" at the Lied Center the following night, Thursday, February 23.

Check out a trailer for the film, and a preview of "Shanghair Tango," below.
