35 mm black and white film


Stills from Yang Fundong’s “Liu Lan 留兰”, 2003, Single-channel video, 35 mm black-and-white film transferred to DVD, with sound; 14 min.

“Liu Lan 留兰 tells a story about the break with tradition in China. An intellectual in a white suit meets a traditionally dressed woman in the countryside. Despite their mutual love, their lives seem incompatible. A woman’s voice sings a folksong, ‘Why are people in love always separated from one another?’ The film’s atmosphere is melancholy and the landscape veiled in mist. Here Yang Fudong shows his connections with Chinese landscape painting.”  Shanghart
