The San Francisco International Film Festival returns for its 56th edition, presenting 200 films and live events from April 25 through May 9 at venues in San Francisco and Berkeley.
Documentary filmmaker Mika Mattila's
second feature explores China's changing face through two figures: Liu Gang, a young photographer on the rise, and Wang Guangyi, a cantankerous painter and millionaire who rails against Western influence and questions his own accomplishments.
