Digital China in the frame
The San Sebastian festival (16-24 Sept 2011) will this year dedicate a thematic retrospective to independent Chinese cinema.
Titled Digital Shadows: The Last Generation Chinese Film, the section is dedicated to works by a contemporary group of film-makers using digital film.
“In recent years independent Chinese cinema has experienced rapid development with the shift from stills to bytes. Digital media permit directors to take more chances, to be more daring, to explore hybrid documentary/fiction formats and combine images shot by themselves with others, reused and re-contextualised,” the festival said.
