Nong Jia le =: Peasant Family Happiness

Loading...
"Tourism in China today signifies many things. ... In the words of Dr. Stevan Harrell, Prof. of Anthropology at the Univ. of Washington, 'This colorful, entertaining, gently ironic documentary presents a vivid and sensitive portrait of a side of China that is little known outside the country: the world of ethnic tourism. In recent years, hundreds of millions of Chinese tourists, mostly city-dwellers, have used their newly increased incomes to travel. And many of the places they visit are ethnic minority villages in China's West and Southwest. They go there for the culture, for the scenery, for the clean air, for something different to see and do.'"--From http://www.berkeleymedia.com/catalog/berkeleymedia/films/anthropology_world_cultures/asian_pacific_studies/peasant_family_happiness [...]

Quitting: Zuo Tian

Loading...
This is the story of Jia Hongsheng, (playing himself) a star of Chinese movies and television circa 1990, who, while appearing onstage in "Kiss of the Spider Woman" in 1992 began smoking pot, quickly progressing to heroin, with a resultant spiral down into professional and personal dysfunction. Nearly all of the other characters in the film, his parents (also professional actors), fellow inmates at a psychiatric hospital, and professional colleagues, play themselves. The film is a fragmented re-enactment of Jia's life from roughly 1992-95; what emerges is a portrait of individual depression and a study in generational division and social malaise. It suggests that Beijing is not so different from New York or Los Angeles-a big, impersonal city that draws ambitious young people from the [...]
