UK PREMIERE Beauty Lives in Freedom + Introduction

Beauty Lives in Freedom is acclaimed artist and filmmaker Wang Bing’s study of Gao Ertai, a dissident Chinese artist, philosopher and activist now residing in Las Vegas. Gao – who had been sent to the labour camps for ‘re-education’ in the 1950s and was again detained following the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests – has committed his life to the study of aesthetics and alienation in an exploration of what it means to be free. In the generous observational style which has become his signature, Wang constructs a richly detailed and humane portrait of a life shaped by immense political and historical forces.

This screening is preceded by an introduction by director Wang Bing.
