China, My Sorrow


Directed by Dai Sijie
China, France, 1989


In August 1966, the Cultural Revolution in full swing, 13-year-old Tian Ben is arrested for playing a pop record; he’s sent to a remote mountain camp in Niu-Peng. There he’s called “Four Eyes” and, with about 16 other older boys and men, he’s made to carry muck up a mountainside.
