Event description

Description

(Hu Bo, 2019) · Q&A with DP Fan Chao to follow film! In this tale of nihilistic rage, desperate lives intertwine in small-town northern China. Over the course of a single, tension-filled day, four protagonists head for Manzhouli and its circus elephant rumored to be sitting still, oblivious to the world's troubles. Fueled by ghostly Steadicams evocative of mentor Béla Tarr and Gus Van Sant's Elephant, injustice and despair burn slowly through this formidable debut by Hu Bo, who killed himself shortly after its completion in 2017. Fan Chao’s travel made possible through the generous support of the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation
