  • Black Breakfast

    2008. China. Directed by Jia Zhangke. With Zhao Tao. A segment from the international omnibus film Stories on Human Rights. No dialogue. 5 min.

  • Still Life

    2006. China/Hong Kong. Directed by Jia Zhangke. With Zhao Tao, Han Sanming. Two tenuously connected narratives of a man and a woman in search of their migrant worker spouses are played out against the changing landscape of the enormous Three Gorges Dam project. The urgency of imminent flooding, the physicality of the workers preparing the buildings, and an all-pervasive background of fundamental change contrast with the two small figures tenaciously traversing the enormous landscape on their personal quests. Exceedingly surreal visual phenomena highlight the film’s general feeling of absurdity. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 111 min.
