Program 13: Whose New Wave?
Saturday, May 11
9:00 p.m. – 81 min
take a deep breath by Katherine Zeng, 10:39
Vanishing Days by Ke Liu, 19:56
There’s No Graceful Way to Move a Body by Victoria Vanderpool, 12:40
Wency’s New Wave (Work in Progress) by Yue Huang, 37:00
From the sweeping, romantic cinematography of Vanishing Days by Ke Liu, to confrontations of death and shock in Victoria Vanderpool’s There’s No Graceful Way to Move a Body, and experimentations in form and style in Yue Huang’s Wency’s New Wave, the final program of the festival, Whose New Wave? stands as a tribute to the history of cinema. Each piece in this program skillfully crafts a story, sweeping the viewer along for the trip, be it through breathtaking Chinese mountains (Liu); a dark house in the woods (Vanderpool); down the rabbit hole of a panic attack (Zeng); or through the very concept of cinema itself (Huang). Grab your Godard and come along for the ride.
