In November 2011, The Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations, headed by Orville Schell, hosted the inaugural U.S.-China Forum on the Arts and Culture.
Schell's son, Ole, a filmmaker, tagged along with his video camera and captured the first trip abroad—and the first overseas performances—by Charles “Lil Buck” Riley.
Lil Buck is a street dancer from Memphis whose earlier collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, when captured on video by filmmaker Spike Jonze and posted to YouTube, drew more than 2 million views.
Here Schell talks about the making of the film.
