5pm: Yunfest in Beijing / 云之南纪录影像展在北京
The 5th Yunnan Multi Culture Visual Festival (aka Yunfest) is taking place now in Kunming. There now, we’ll bring back a selection of short documentaries from Yunfest’s “Youth Forum” to showcase emerging talent and new film work from China’s ethnically diverse southwest. Mandarin with English subtitles.
从 云之南纪录影像展 “青年单元”的短纪录片。语言：普通话，英文字幕。
UPDATE: Fresh from YUNFEST, we will screen Living Without Men (~30 mins), a short documentary by Guangzhou-based filmmaker Luo Yi. Living Without Men focuses on the lives of three elderly women in Foshan, in southern China’s Guangdong province. In their early 20’s, these women took a vow of celibacy, swearing an oath not to marry. Now in their 90’s, Living Without Men captures their amazing life stories and follows their day-to-day lives in a small nursing home.
6:30pm: Jalainur / 《扎赉诺尔》
Jalainur in a mining area located in the far northern Chinese province of Inner Mongolia, near the Russian border. For over one hundred years, Jalainur’s coal mine has been an important resource for China’s industrial infrastructure and for the shipping of goods both domestically and internationally. “Jalainur” is a beautifully shot fiction film depicting life and relationships in this scenic, remote outpost.
8pm: Three Minute Group / 三分钟
Three Minute Group is a collective of about 10 CAFA graduates who each make one three minute film every month. Each month has its own theme and a screening event organized by the group members. This month “3mins” will debut their freshest batch of 10 shorts (~30 minutes) at our event and afterwards lead a discussion about their process and experiences operating as a uniquely coordinated independent film collective in Beijing.
Saturday March 27 / 3月27日
5pm: “Reframing the Artist” (dir. / 导演 Sascha Pohle)
Reframing the Artist is a short (~30 mins) meditation on the depiction of “the artist” in film. Director Sascha Pohle takes scenes from past works such as “Pollock” and recreates them in Dafen, a village near Shenzhen where master works of oil on canvas are reproduced by hand at an industrial scale for commercial sale. Mandarin with English subtitles.
6pm: “TAPE” (dir. Li Ning) / 《胶带》（导演：李凝）
TAPE is a surreal quasi-documentary focusing on artist and dancer Li Ning and his “obsession” with tape:
“After many years, my research into the use of tape reached the point of obsession and madness: it was the focus of my life everywhere, on the stage, in my works and in the depths of my thoughts…”
After the film (running time ~150 mins, Mandarin with English subtitles) there will be an audience discussion on Reframing the Artist, TAPE, and the role of the filmmaker as voyeur, participant, and interpreter of the framed image. Bilingual discussion.
