It uses fact but also embraces fiction, and makes it hard to tell them apart. Those might be actual tears, say, but are they connected to actual sadness? Does it even matter? Some of Chelsea Knight's performances are pure inventions, others are b...   [more]

Wang Bing makes films. Most are documentary films, but their lack of linear narrative and their extreme duration bring them closer to being history paintings.
