The Unfinished History of Life

Wei wancheng de shenghuo shi

Directed by Cong Feng
China, 2011


The filmmaker spent years in a Chinese village to record daily life’s every detail. He drank many a glass with the villagers and observed them for so long that he started to recognize their repeating patterns of behavior. That is why there is no end to this tale.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
