Bulldozers, Bibles, and Very Sharp Knives: The Chinese Independent Documentary Scene
Author(s): Abe Markus Nornes
A report on the state of independent documentary filmmaking in China in 2009, covering in particular the Yunnan Multicultural Visual Festival (or Yunfest, as it is known) in Kunming and the China Documentary Film Festival in Songzhuang. A variety of factors have converged to make an anti-authoritarian documentary movement possible, but it may be ending as directors become professionalized.
