A courageous study of a buried chapter of China’s communist history,
Wang Bing’s latest film is a challenging, epic work. It consists of a riveting confessional by Fengming, a woman who survived the horrors of Mao's China. She stares straight into the camera and tells the story of her family being swept up in the countries “anti-rightist” campaign and sent to forced labor camps. Emotionally devastating, the film is not only a crucial historical document, but a love story and a conceptual art piece. (2007, 184 min, digital video)
