Art Repatriation to China

This short educational film looks at the case of the 1860 looting of Beijing’s Old Summer Palace and charts the journey of 2 bronze animal heads which, in 2009, made it back to their country of origin. But how is art repatriation shaped, altered and influenced by economic, political and cultural shifts? And how is Jackie Chan involved in all this?
With this film we are providing educational content directly relevant to the art business courses taught at Sotheby’s Institute. This film provides interesting and useful content for Sotheby’s Institutes target student demographic and stimulates strong brand awareness amongst that group.

We have worked with many education institutions including Sotheby’s Institute, the School of the New York Times, Claremont Graduate University, Bath Spa University, Imperial College, Future Learn and Eurocentres. Working closely with marketing and communication departments we have a keen understanding for producing content that drives sales and strengthens brand across multiple social and broadcast platforms.
