Born in Beijing

Jing sheng

Directed by Ma Li
China, 2012


The subject is raw, poignant and dirty: the poverty-stricken lives of a group of petitioners (people whose rights have been violated by local government) in the new China. In classic black-and-white, exceptionally framed and of almost serene beauty.
