Video (1920*1080)

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.


银幕通讯 VII:乡野长城

影像 (1920*1080)

露天电影曾在新中国文化建设中产生过巨大的社会历史作用,它是劳动生活中唯一的公共娱乐,是普及农科的利器,更是国家建立精神壁垒的意识形态工具;它在新时期率先进入农村文化市场,经过短暂辉煌之后便归于沉寂;它是老一辈人记忆中最梦幻的部分,也是新一代年轻人心中空缺的“电影状态”。

四位年轻人期冀于重新放映露天电影,以此来收获苏童、格非、巴音博罗等中国作家笔下,关于露天电影的银幕记忆。这部短片以里外3个银幕记录我们此行的全部经历,并通过还原真实的视与听感受,带领观众感受露天电影的魅力。
