Cinematographer: You Have to See Shen Yun to Believe It

“I think it was magical and wonderful.”
 

“I had seen a performance with acrobats in China, and I thought that’s what was going to be. I didn’t realize it was going to be classical dance, so I was very pleasantly surprised, and it was something totally different and absolutely lovely.” 
 

“[I felt] just kind of transported. It’s wonderful. It’s like an out-of-body experience.”
 

“This beauty and culture existed thousands of years ago … All these magical beauties are all part of the culture.” 
 

“I think it’s fantastic … in tradition, in beauty … The playing of the erhu is incredible.” 
 

“The projections were incredible … the timing of the projections to the actors was astounding, truly astounding.”
 

“I would recommend to everybody, absolutely everybody I know.”
 

“You have to really see it to believe it. I encourage you to see it.”
