Listening to Third Grandmother's Stories

Ting sannainai jiang guoqu de shiqing

Directed by Hui Wen
China, 2011


A language written by women confronts official ideology in filmmaker Wen Hui’s film. She starts from stories her 83-year-old great-aunt tells her of being tortured as a “class enemy” during Mao’s China: the result is poetry, an experimental documentary that combines testimony and dance-like gesture.
