Yang Ban Xi: The 8 Modelworks

This imported documentary is a fascinating look at the glorious and bizarre genre of musical propaganda films made during the height of China's Cultural Revolution. The stories of what happened to the writers, directors and actors of these long-lost films are fascinating, but it is the surreal Technicolor movie clips (damaged from time though they may be) that make this unusual bit of art history worth watching. In Mandarin with English subtitles. 90 minutes
