Accordion Class explores the under-examined history of the accordion and its legacy in China, as the only permitted western instrument during the cultural revolution. Since then, the accordion’s popularity and influence has risen and fallen over half a century. Looking at accordion classes and competition today, the film presents how the instrument is taught, performed and received by a younger generation in the city of Changsha.
