Editor's note: This week's events include a patriotic film and a drama in celebration of the National Day, when China recognizes the contributions its citizenry has made to the country. Also on offer is the largest solo exhibition in Asia for an American artist. Here are three events you don't want to miss.

1. Patriotic anthology film 'Me and My Father's Generation'

Following "My People, My Country" in 2019 and "My People, My Homeland" in 2020, this year's National Day will see the release of the anthology's third patriotic film, "Me and My Father's Generation." The movie tells the story of average Chinese families across four eras, bringing together their collective memories and shedding light on familial relationships to showcase how parental love can enlighten children.
