Chinese 6th Generation Film: Blind Shaft

Saturday, March 9
Film -- An Introduction to Chinese Sixth Generation Film: Focusing on Blind Shaft
Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: 4130 Posvar Hall
Announced by: Asian Studies Center
In conjunction with: Nathional Consortium for Teaching About Asia
Film critics consider Blind Shaft an excellent example of Sixth Generation film. It is “former documentary filmmaker Li Yang’s feature debut and is both a bleak film noir set on a lawless frontier and an indictment of China’s disastrous Economic Miracle…In modern Northwestern China, itinerant coal miners Tang and Song place a cash price on human life in a world where humanity has been deemed utterly worthless. The two homicidal drifters perversely turn the tables on a corrupt system of unregulated mines and negligent owners by befriending fellow miners, murdering them in staged ‘accidents’, then passing their victims off as relatives in order to pocket their employer’s hush money.” The film will be introduced by Cindy McNulty, an English and History teacher at Oakland High School who has taught and traveled extensively in China over a period of twenty five year.

Coffee and light refreshements will be provided.
