Silent film of Chinese college life shot in 1926 emerges

The first silent film about Chinese college life, which was shot in 1926 by alumni of Shanghai Jiaotong University, has been released recently to mark the Chiao Tung University’s 120 year history.

Chiao Tung University was founded in 1896 and was developed into five independent universities in China. Shanghai Jiaotong University is one of the most popular ones, which nine subjects rank QS World’s top 50.

The documentary panoramically revealed students’ educational life, entertainment and sports activities, to celebrate the Chiao Tung University’s 30th anniversary in 1926. The footage is very precious, as other Chinese top universities, such as Peking University and Tsinghua University, don’t have any video footage about college life of that time period. Take a look at China’s campus life in 1926!
