An essential chronicler of modern China in constant flux, Wang Bing turns his camera this time on garment workers in Eastern China. His roving study of migrant laborers is a sometimes shocking, sometimes lulling immersion into a usually invisible swath of humanity. Wang’s steady gaze gives the sense of people (many of them teenagers) buffeted about by far more powerful forces, and mired in the daily grind. A prize-winner at last year’s Venice Film Festival, it’s another formidable effort from the director of ’Til Madness Do Us Part and Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tracks.
Please note: this screening will take place in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center.
