New Women

Directed by Yang Fudong
China, 2013
Short, Avant-Garde


The film examines and suggests how women – and, ultimately, the ideas about women – have embodied China’s search for modernity over the past hundred years. It is a tribute to nascent Chinese cinema, also a depiction of the ideal woman image in each person’s heart which implies an idealistic state.
