Asian Art and History: Behind the Silks
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


The Soong family was a political dynasty in China that reached the highest levels of power. This film follows the lives of the three Soong daughters, who were educated in America and returned to China. Ai-ling (the oldest) married a wealthy and powerful businessman. Ching-ling married Sun Yat-sen, the revolutionary founder of modern China. Mei-ling (the youngest) married Chiang Kai-shek, China's leader during World War II. The sisters captured the world's fascination for their brilliant marriages and their strong influence on their nation.


This lecture will be followed by lunch and a discussion with the lecturer that is included in the ticket price. This presentation is part of the Asian Art and History lecture series.
