Screenect VII: The Great Wall In Countryside
Outdoor movie used to play a great social and historical role in the cultural construction of new China. It was the only public entertainment in people’s labor life as well as a great way for the popularization of agricultural science and an ideology tool for the country to establish spiritual barriers. It is the first thing entered rural cultural market in the new period, but finally became unpopular after temporary success. It is the most fantastic part in the memory of the old generation and an absent “movie state” for the young generation.
The four young people hope to get memories about outdoor movies described by Chinese writers like Su Tong and Bayin Boluo through replaying outdoor movies. This video has recorded our whole journey with three screens and make the audience experience the charm of outdoor movies through reappearing real audio-visual feelings.
