Fengming: A Chinese Memoir
(Wang Bing, 2007).
Unprompted and unrelenting, an elderly Chinese woman recounts her harrowing experiences during the 1950s anti-Rightist campaign and 1960s Cultural Revolution. Wang Bing's three-hour, three-set-up documentary is a torrent of words thats not only a devastating critique of Chinese Communism, but also a most remarkable performance.
