REDCAT joins a distinguished consortium of film institutions in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. to present the China Onscreen Biennial, returning for a fourth edition in 2018, (October 19—November 17). This year’s selections draw an unusual, unexpected picture of China in her vast ethnic, geographic, and cultural diversity, including China’s quickly expanding entertainment industry. Other selections engage more explicitly as works of art, yet still interrogate pressing societal concerns. One salient trait of these young Chinese filmmakers has been the growing number of female filmmakers turning a gendered gaze at a rapidly changing society.
