The 4th China Onscreen Biennial

The 4th China Onscreen Biennial 

“A rich and varied showcase of new Chinese cinema, curated with an eye toward shattering easy assumptions.”
Los Angeles Times

REDCAT joins a distinguished consortium of film institutions in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. to present the China Onscreen Biennial, returning for a fourth edition in 2018, (October 19November 17). This year’s selections draw an unusual, unexpected picture of China in her vast ethnic, geographic, and cultural diversity, including China’s quickly expanding entertainment industry. Other selections engage more explicitly as works of art, yet still interrogate pressing societal concerns. One salient trait of these young Chinese filmmakers has been the growing number of female filmmakers turning a gendered gaze at a rapidly changing society.
