Co-curated with Zhang Zhen of NYU Tisch Cinema Studies since 2006.The Reel China @NYU Film Biennial presents a sampling of the most outstanding contemporary independent films produced in China. Participating filmmakers range from more experienced professional documentarians to young novices. As their disparate visions extend and overlap, we witness the persistent presence of independent cameras that, amidst the disorienting transformation in China, assures the discovery and documentation of fragments of contemporary reality that are becoming history at breakneck speed.
