CHA FANG by Zhu Rikun

Uploaded on Saturday 7 December 2013


Shot in exceptional and unique circumstances, the film shows a tense exchange between Power –the police – and Individual – the director himself, who is in a hotel room in the middle of the night. Like in a game of chess layed with inscrutable rules, the players make moves and counter-moves on the crazy chessboard of the strict control procedures which the Chinese police adopts with non-residents. An enclosed and claustrophobic film: an example of cinéma vérité in a Kafkian absurd.
