Shui-bo Wang
Autobiographical animated film by the Chinese artist Shui-bo Wang who grew up during the Cultural Revolution (1966–1976) and for whom the memories of the protests on Tiananmen Square (1989) have become a key image of broken hopes. A rich collage that juxtaposes family and official documents.
