  • Though I Am Gone

    2007. China. Directed by Hu Jie. The documentaries of Hu Jie, China's most fearless historical filmmaker, probe lost stories of the nation’s revolutionary past. His profile of 85-year-old Wang Qingyao reveals how Wang extemporaneously performed the role of documentarian when his wife, the school teacher Bian Zhongyun, was beaten to death by her students as an accused reactionary during the Cultural Revolution. Wang’s photos of the incident emerge as a historical precursor to the contemporary documentary movement in its efforts to record social injustices and marginalized figures. Courtesy of dGenerate/Icarus. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 68 min.

  • Some Actions which Haven’t Been Defined Yet in the Revolution

    2011. China. Directed by Sun Xun. This complex, beautifully rendered woodprint animation—made using a method that was popular in the decades following the 1949 formation of the Peoples Republic of China—presents a dark portrait of the contemporary world. No dialogue. 13 min.

In the Film exhibition Chinese Realities/Documentary Visions
