Yang Fudong (China)

Yang Fudong was born in Beijing (b. 1971) and graduated from the China Academy of Fine Arts, Hangzhou.  Filmmaker Yang Fudong has created some of the most staggeringly beautiful works of independent cinema to come out of China. Exquisitely framed and filmed in b&w 35 mm, Yang's work has an anachronistic feel, combining the lyricism of Chinese scroll painting, with the loose expressiveness of nouvelle vague, all mixed with the stark tableau of Jim Jarmusch whom Yang cites as something of an inspiration. His critically acclaimed films reflect on the conundrums of idealism and ideology.
