Wen Hai WE
2008 Documentary HDV B&W, Colour 102min Chinese subtitles
Some describe them as problematic individuals
They describle themselves as creatures of politics
----from the poster of the film
Starting from a project on the portrait of laying Buddhist (Wenhai opposes the religious feeling to the chaos), "WE" leads us to meet something more, and more powerful: which are the dissidents in one word. The original title of the film was "TAMEN", which means "THEY". But Wenhai knows very well that a director is also shooting himself while he shoots others. By calling "THEY" , he would have put a distance, the people in the film would be felt as a prudent strangers group. The final cut takes position :They are "WE".
Wenhai said modestly of his film that he has just tries to present some images of citizens. Formidable modesty helps him find a sort of courage on those poet-heroes, since it makes us see and hear the weight of the history on a "today" made up with neon lights, mobile phones, skyscrapers, and Olympic games.
（extracted from L’independance Personnelle de Huang Wenhai, by Marie-Pierre Duhamel Muller）

Li Peifeng SILVER
2009 Documentary HDV Colour 96min Chinese subtitle
After leaving his home village in northwest region for several years, Li Peifeng returned there starting to make a documentary. His shooting lasts 4 years continuously. Then he finished his first long-feature work.
In this film, he doesn't follow any special person. Even his father is also an obscure one in the mass portrait. It's once again a story about migration and exile. Due to the “West-East Natural Gas Transmission Project”, which has none of the business with them and the Urbanizing Country Movement, the people are obliged or cheated to leave their home village where they has been living in generations.
With this background Li Peifeng depicts his main character of the film: that piece of dry,infertile and desolate land full of smell of the earth. Corresponding to such scene is the people’s wrath and depression.
This film reveals the stocking pain of Chinese village but not indifferent. The fimmaker links daily life with short chapters on birth, being aged, being sick and death,in which he represents many scenes as ritual. This is a piece of elegy dedicated to the hometown, as the terminal moment of its destiny.
Born in 1972, Li Peifeng founded in 2004 a folk art group which focuses on the traditional Shaanxi opera (Qinqiang), and he also makes research on the music of Central Asia. He used to work for television before turned to independent documentary production. Silver is his first feature documentary.
