China Onscreen Biennial

China Onscreen Biennial

“a rumination on ruins and the transformative roles of space and place in contemporary China.” Yunfest

Co-presented with the UCLA Confucius Institute

Presented as part of the Jack H. Skirball Series

REDCAT is one of several L.A. venues for this three-week survey of voices that make China such a dynamic film and media environment. The biennial’s program ranges from the latest internationally-lauded auteur films to crowd-pleasing homages to major figures of Chinese cinema to experimental media. The Oct. 21 "Wild Women" program presents an array of women who disagree, with a good sense of humor, with the Confucian mold. On Oct. 24 the documentary-narrative mash-up of Barking (2013, West Coast Premiere) rounds out the Spectrum shorts, its roving camera ranging across a trash-dump world of migrants and stray dogs in the Beijing outskirts.

The China Onscreen Biennial is presented with the UCLA Confucius Institute in partnership with REDCAT, the UCLA Film & Television Archive, AFI FEST, and Pomona College.

The program at REDCAT is curated by Cheng-Sim Lim and Bérénice Reynaud.
