Handled With Care - Chinese Porcelain to Sweden and Back
A six minute version of a documentary film commissioned by Scandinavian Airlines, Handled with Care tells the story of 'export porcelain' bought by the Swedish East India Company in the 1700s and early 1800s in China, and an exhibition of some of the finest pieces from that era in the Forbidden City in Beijing.
For more information about the film and the porcelain exhibition, as well as the 2006 visit of the replica Gotheborh ship to China, see this website: www.chinafromsweden.com.
This film was shot and edited by Luke Mines, with narration by Marie Wennberg (English version) and Jane Zheng (Chinese version). The film was conceived and produced by Jeremy Goldkorn.
