"Jia Zhangke, A Guy from Fenyang" is the portrait of a Chinese director who has become one of the most important filmmakers of our time. This documentary by Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) follows Jia back to his birthplace, the Shanxi province in Northern China, and to the locations of his films. His actors, friends, and close collaborators join him in retracing the history behind his landmark features including Platform (2000), The World (2004), Still Life (2006) and A Touch of Sin (2013). Through these films Jia has told the story of contemporary China, and the convulsive shifts endured by its people as the country has gone through unprecedented change.
An intimate and incisive portrait of one of the greatest artists of our time, 'Jia Zhangke, A Guy from Fenyang' is a profound work in its own right.
