Yumen combines ghost stories and “ruin porn” to form a celluloid psycho-collage of wandering souls seeking connection with one another and a lost collective history among the frozen remnants of the abandoned oil town of Yumen in China’s northwest Gansu province. Shot in 16mm, the film is a fusion of performance, narrative and social reflection, as well as a reflection on cinema, a psycho-sociological collage of human gestures and needs of closeness and understanding.
