Sijie Dai – Niu-Peng AKA China, my sorrow (1989)

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

Dai Sijie’s first feature film. Filmed in the south of France with a mostly non-professional cast. As Dai’s famous film Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, the story of Niu-peng is about the Cultural revolution, the re-education programs, and about music.

An awestruck 13-year-old boy is arrested by Mao’s cultural police for propagating obscene records during the Cultural Revolution. (He composed a love song for a 13-year-old girl.) Isolated in mountain corridors, the young boy befriends another teenage “terrorist” and an elderly Buddhist monk. He imparts on them the need to preserve their family structures and create a greater sense of self. “A deft and oddly lighthearted tribute to the traditions and the spirit of freedom that survived the Cultural Revolution” (Caryn James, The New York Times).

    It’s sad to see there are so few Chinese films! do you happen to have these films that are very difficult to come across? Huangjin zhou by Li Hongqi and San Zimei by Wang Bing
