Wu Wenguang’s 1990 film ushered in a new documentary style in China, focusing on urban issues and operating outside the cultural bureaucracy. The five young artists he profiles – a writer, a photographer, two painters, and a director of avant-garde theater – reject a life tethered to the government yet still hope to modernize the urban cultural scene. Their frank ruminations about life, art, and the future are punctuated by groundbreaking verite shots of people living in the hutong of Beijing.
