    2010. China. Directed by Li Ning. Avant-garde dancer Li Ning documents five years of his struggle to balance life as a choreographer with a dance troupe of committed college students, and his responsibilities as a son, husband, and father. Li Ning’s life becomes intertwined with the film and with his own obsessions; his life before the camera is driven and chaotic, a public platform and a confessional. Loosely chronological and rife with symbolism, the film is a riveting portrait of an artist’s attempts at expression and conflicts with societal norms. Chinese Independent Cinema. In Chinese; English subtitles. 168 min.
