In Charactor Still 1 r37v
This documentary by young filmmaker Dong Xueying explores the working conditions of actors in modern China. The film follows a director making a semi-autobiographical feature about the Cultural Revolution, taking thirteen young actors back to that turbulent time by bringing them to a firearms factory in rural Sichuan. Having to wear clothes and listen to music from the period, they start to adapt to the Cultural Revolution spirit, and conflict arises when one actor tries to leave, raising fascinating questions about Chinese society, history and the film industry.
