Chung Kuo China
(Michelangelo Antonioni, 1972).
In the late 60s, Michelangelo Antonioni turned from poet of alienation to tourist of the revolution. Having sampled youth culture in swinging London in Blowup and militant Berkeley with Zabriskie Point, the Italian master went all the way to check out the Chinese Cultural Revolution in this rarely-screened 1972 documentary.
