Twenty titles in the ’’Digital Shadows: Last Generation Chinese Film’’ 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 city’s San Telmo Museum to organise the cycle «Digital Shadows: Last Generation Chinese Film», 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 they’ve captured the changes underway in Chinese society thanks to independent films exploring myriad formats and narratives.
Bérénice 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.
