The great names in cinema
HONG KONG, France
| 150 minutes | 2016
A hard-hitting documentary on the plight of migrants in fast-changing contemporary China. A leading documentarist of China’s social realities and a regular on the international festival circuit, Wang Bing is back, attuned as ever to the most burning issues of the day. Here, he trains his lens on the migrants who flock to China’s mushrooming cities only to end up living in appalling conditions. In a context of relentless oppression and humiliation, the film tracks several characters in search of a better life. An unvarnished chronicle of contemporary China where the power of money is bitter indeed.
