Chinese Independents, Part 2

Synopsis

Within the gates of an isolated mental institution in in southwest China’s Yunnan province, patients are confined to one single floor of a building. Once locked in, with little contact from the outside world, anything goes.

Our take

We end our series on Chinese independent cinema with a powerful and immersive film from the country’s award-winning, preeminent documentarian, Wang Bing. Here he gains access to an asylum whose use and practices beg questions that extend beyond mental health and probe the very nature of freedom.
