Swimming out till the sea turns blue

Zhangke Jia, 1970-

DVD - 2021

From master director Jia Zhang-Ke comes a vital document of Chinese society since 1949. Jia interviews three prominent authors, Jia Pingwa, Yu Hua, and Liang Hong, born in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, respectively. In their stories, we hear of the dire circumstances they faced in their rural villages and small towns, and the substantial political effort undertaken to address it, from the social revolution of the 1950s through the unrest of the late 1980s. In their faces, we see full volumes left ...unsaid. Jia weaves it all together with his usual brilliance.
