  • Bumming in Beijing: The Last Dreamers

    1990. China. Directed by Wu Wenguang. Shot before and after the Tiananmen Square incident, Wu Wenguang's portrait of five artists eking out a life in the nation's capital is considered the birth of the Chinese independent documentary movement. The film's open, observational structure and handheld camera work are hallmarks of the movement today, as is its self-reflexive awareness of the documentarian's role, with a sense of intimacy and solidarity between filmmaker and subject.
