The Reel China @NYU 6th Film Biennial continues our tradition of sampling some of the most outstanding contemporary independent documentaries produced in China. This year we have also added a few independent fiction films that we feel also reflect a keen understanding of this post-reform moment. Participating filmmakers range from more experienced professional documentarians to young novices. As their disparate visions extend and overlap, we witness the persistent presence of independent cameras that, amidst the disorienting transformations of today, assures the discovery and documentation of fragments of contemporary reality that are becoming history at breakneck speed.
This clip features the Opening and Welcome of the event presented on Fri., October 19, 2012, and a Q&A with Wang Yunlong.
