Huang Weikai DISORDER
Making the selections from a vast amount of street sketch-style rushes shot by amateur TV journalists, then abstracting those moments he thinks as most meaningful and interesting, the author comprises this work of over 20 separate incidents. It is a collage of images from urban life, which includes a sketch of a man who claims he is going to commit suicide, a scene where a group of pigs run wild on the highway, the discovery of an antique on a building site, images of a river shared by a fisherman oblivious to the dirt around him and a swimming team campaigning for the environment...with an almost poetic musical rhythm and atmosphere, this documentary work is proving the creativity of the editing, as well as reflecting the coarse, chaotic reality full of irony and black humors that surrounds us.
Huang Weikai, born in Guangdong in 1972. This is his second documentary work. Before he made Floating (2005), also worked for San Yuan Li (2003) and Meishi Street (2006) as the main photographer.陽建軍《風花雪月》
Yang Jianjun WIND FLOWERSNOW MOON
2008 | Documentary | HDV | Color | 88min | Ch&En subtitles
“In a small village in the northwest of Sichuan province, Grandpa Yang, who is ninety years old already, is the ninth generation successor of Yang’s geomantic family. Men in this family have almost carried on the geomantic craft. They mainly preside over funerals for the villagers. The documentary focuses on this family, recording several deaths: the Chinese-type tragedy of “the young perish, and the old linger” ; the sons and daughters who wrangled over the funeral expenses with each other; an affectionate couple who died one after another. Meanwhile, in Yang’s family, Mr. Yang celebrated the birth of his two great-grandchildren and at the same time had to bury his son, who died of cancer. The name of the film, Wind Flower Snow Moon, is actually the name of the coronach that the geomancers sing when they worship Buddha at the funerals. In the year of 2008, which is attacked successively by severe snowstorm and earthquake, the family had to suffer Eight Pains defined by Buddha, namely, Birth, Caducity, Illness, Death, Departure with the Beloved, Encounter with the Hated, Dissatisfactory and Rampancy of Five Yins.”
Yang Jianjun was born in Cool Water Village, Tongjiang Town, Deyang in Sichuan Province in 1978. He graduated from South China Normal University, then worked as a teacher in a middle school for four years. He was admitted to Beijing Film Academy in 2006 to study for a master's degree of film scripts and theory.
