Edinburgh International Film Festival : 24 June 2012 (90 mins)
From his first film, West of the Tracks (2003), to his latest work, Wang Bing has brought rigour and compassion to the archaeology of the physical and social changes China has undergone since the Cultural Revolution. Not only a pivotal figure in Chinese documentary filmmaking, Wang is an artist whose work with time and space marks him as one of the most significant filmmakers of our time. At this masterclass, co-sponsored with the Scottish Documentary Institute, Wang will share his insights.
