The North American tour for "The Land of Many Palaces" came to an end on April 18th with a final screening in Toronto, Canada. I traveled non-stop for three months throughout the US and Canada to screen the film to a variety of different audiences, in many types of venue, including, film festivals, independent theatres, universities, organisations, museums, and schools. I also focused on garnering press about the film and Ordos.
Here are some photos from the tour...
