“Mount Davis: From Citadel to Campus” Screening & Sharing Session




For decades, The White House stood abandoned on Hong Kong’s Mount Davis. With a history that extends over the last century, the site was a longstanding reminder of war and conflict. Today, the University of Chicago has transformed the site completely, giving it new life as a center for education. This documentary presents a compelling account of the rich history of the Mount Davis site as well as its rebirth.
