City Light

Chengshi zhiguang

Directed by Yang Fudong
China, 2000
Short, Avant-Garde


Through simple framing techniques, two different actors are used to represent an office worker who experiences a rift between his public and private personas. The film uses deadpan humour to capture a cyclical state of waking and sleeping, alienation and longing in urban life.
