Asia and the Pacific Screens - Still Life 三峡好人

(2006, 111 mins, China Directed by Jia Zhangke 賈樟柯 Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles)

Set against the spectacular landscape of the Three Gorges region, Jia Zhangke’s humane and moving Golden Lion winner tells two contemplative and compassionate stories of a man and a woman searching for absent spouses in Fengjie – an ancient town on the Yangtze River which is being demolished and will soon vanish forever in the flooding caused by the controversial Three Gorges hydroelectric dam project. At the same time as offering a revelatory, thought-provoking portrait of people adrift in a world they no longer recognise, Still Life also reveals their energy, resilience and ability to reach new understandings.
