Talk: In Conversation with Wang Bing

Chinese filmmaker and artist Wang Bing (Beauty Lives in Freedom, 2018, Mrs. Fang, 2017, Bitter Money, 2016, The Ditch, 2010, Fengming, A Chinese Memoir, 2007) discusses his uncompromising political documentary-making, examining the ethics of representation under and against Chinese authoritarianism in a conversation hosted by Erika Balsom, senior lecturer in Film Studies at King’s College London.

Throughout his acclaimed body of work, including the seminal West of the Tracks (2003), the director turns his camera towards those displaced by the changing social and economic landscape of a rapidly-developing China. Shot digitally, Wang’s monumental films reflect his rigorous attention to political and emotional subject matter. This discussion will present an opportunity to engage with Wang’s ambitious filmmaking, considering its place in contemporary China.

Screening at this year’s FoR is Beauty Lives in Freedom, Wang Bing’s study of dissident Chinese artist, philosopher and activist Gao Ertai.

Attend this talk and the UK Premiere of Beauty Lives in Freedom for a discounted price of £16. This offer can be purchased by calling the ICA Box Office on 020 7930 3647.
