Doubts within the system

Following West of Tracks, an impressive epic about the destruction of an entire industrial area, Wang Bing has adopted a very different, minimalist approach for his new work. He Fengming, the title ‘heroin’ of the eponymous film, describes how Mao’s permanent revolution turned her life into a 30-year-long nightmare. Painfully accurate in its presentation of detail.

Wang Bing (*1967) lives in Beijing.
