En kinesisk Shoa, där Kinas mest hyllade dokumentärfilmare samlar otroliga vittnesmål från det sena 50-talets kinesiska arbetsläger.

Under 1957 och 1958 pågick en kampanj mot högeravvikare i Kina. Mer än 500 000 personer sändes till arbetsläger för att komma åter till den rätta vägen. Wang Bing berättar om ett läger i utkanten av Gobiöknen, där 3 500 personer skulle skapa ett mönsterjordbruk. Detta i ett landskap där det var fullkomligt omöjligt att odla och där temperaturen på vintern kunde nå 40 minusgrader. När lägret stängdes 1961 hade bara 500 personer överlevt. Wang Bing (Mrs. Fang, GFF 2018) har hittat några av överlevarna. De är alla över 80 år gamla, och några av dem berättar för första gången om sina upplevelser.

Wang Bing

Regissör: Wang Bing

Born in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, China, in 1967, Wang Bing studied photography at the Lu Xun Academy of Fine Art and cinematography at Beijing Film Academy. He began his career as an independent filmmaker in 1999. Discovered in 2003, WEST OF TRACKS, (Tiexi qu) an enormous documentary work, more than 9 hours long, encountered a great success internationally. Besides feature documentary (THREE SISTERS/San zimei, ‘TIL MADNESS/Feng’ai), he is also active in video installation (CRUDE OIL/ Yuanyou, a 14 hours film), has directed several fiction films (BRUTALITY FACTORY/Baoli gongchang, THE DITCH/Jiabiangou) and has started a noteworthy work in photography.

Without being a specialist on the subject I did know a little bit about it. For instance I knew that two of my father’s brothers had been accused of being rightists. The same thing happened to other inhabitants of my village. And in my childhood I heard talk about this particularly dark moment in our recent history. Like myself, many people knew about it. We knew that there had been a repression, that a great number of persons had been sent to a reeducation camp because they had written or pronounced a single phrase, or for a detail, sometimes for nothing at all... But we didn’t know anything about the reality of the camps and life there. We were unaware of the magnitude of the purges, the countless deaths, the national scale of the anti-rightist movement. All is not well known. The perspective of the people didn’t go beyond the scope of a family or village.
