ONCE UPON A TIME PROLETARIAN

Director:

China/UK ? 76 mins ?Director: Xiaolu Guo ? Subtitled? Documentary


While filming her drama She, a Chinese, director Xiaolu Guo found herself captivated by the local peasant onlookers who had gathered to watch the filmmaking, and turned her camera on them. Their stories, relayed here in 12 chapters, form a patchwork quilt of post-Maoist China – and its increasing materialism – in arresting, visually poetic vignettes.
