ZHÀNTÁI Platform
PR China 2000. Director: Jia Zhangke
Cast: Wang Hongwei, Zhao Tao, Liang Jingdong. 155 mins. 35mm. Original version with German subtitles.

A theatre group from rural Fenyang fights against the decline of communism and the rise of popular culture in China. The film takes a look back at the 1980s, a key decade in China’s recent history. In a network of historical and artistic references, the film interweaves personal memories of the author – who himself comes from Fenyang – with collective history. Pop songs play a central role in this, and Cecília Mello’s uses them as a starting point in her analysis.

Cecília Mello teaches film and audiovisual media at the University of São Paulo. Her publications include The Cinema of Jia Zhangke: Realism and Memory in Chinese Film (2019).

Lecture & Film
Jia Zhangke: Cinema of Transformation

Within four decades, the People’s Republic of China has transformed itself at a breathtaking pace from an agrarian state into the world’s second largest highly technical economy: The films of Jia Zhangke, one of the most important Chinese directors of today, are seismograms of this transformation. Until July 2020, the Lecture & Film series will focus on Jia Zhangke’s work.
