China, I love you| 40mins
Director: Liu Beilin | Producer: Liu Beilin
Focus Years: 2014 | Country: France
On 8 August 1966, Chairman Mao launched the anti-bourgeois Cultural Revolution which was intended to lead the Chinese proletariat towards its ultimate liberation. â€œAnd then...â€ nothing proceeded as planned. In this caustic essay on the Great Helmsmanâ€™s last bluff, which continues to be celebrated in a contemporary China devoured by unbridled consumerism, Liu Beilin updates the â€œdiscrepantâ€ editing technique so dear to the leftist cinema of Isidore Isou.
