Twenty titles in the â€™â€™Digital Shadows: Last Generation Chinese Filmâ€™â€™ cycle at San Sebastian Festival
The cycle includes 18 features and 2 shorts by prominent contemporary Chinese filmmakers
This year, the 59th edition of San Sebastian Festival joins hands with the cityâ€™s San Telmo Museum to organise the cycle Â«Digital Shadows: Last Generation Chinese FilmÂ», an event also benefitting from the collaboration of the Filmoteca de Catalunya.
The exhibit comprises twenty films made in digital media from 2000-2010, a way of turning the spotlight on some of the most interesting Chinese moviemakers to have burst onto the scene in the last decade while giving us a look at how theyâ€™ve captured the changes underway in Chinese society thanks to independent films exploring myriad formats and narratives.
BÃ©rÃ©nice Reynaud, specialized in Chinese Film and curator of the retrospective, will present the cycle. Directors Liu Jiayin and Zhu Wen will visit Donostia – San Sebastian.
