The exhibition themed about the classic Chinese animated film “The Monkey King: Uproar in Heaven” opens at Shanghai Tower on September 25. The exhibition will last until October 8 to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the birth of the film director Wan Laiming.
The exhibition is produced by Shanghai iFlower Company, Shanghai Animation Film Studios and Shanghai Tower, featuring photos and videos regarding the film, including original sketches of the film characters which are being shown to the public for the first time. Directed by Wan Laiming, the film brought the first few chapters of the novel to the screen, showing how the monkey challenged the powers in heaven and defeated celestial warriors before the start of the journey.
In addition, the full version of the film will also be played on a continuous loop during the exhibition. Various cultural and creative products of the studio and Shanghai Tower are also available.
