Xu Xin China, 2010

apursansar's rating of the film Karamay

A devastating documentary about collective failure that lead to a tragedy and injustice done to the bereaveds. Xu Xin displays the circumstances through news footage and long interview sessions, not just giving a very clear picture of the course of events on Dec 8th, 1994, but also showcasing the mentality of everyone involved. The result is an unsettling account on gonvernmental arrogance and indifference.
