Event description

Description

Wednesday 6 December / 6.30pm / The Box / £4/£3, booking required

The second in a film-based lecture series exploring sexuality and sensuality within Chinese cinema, in partnership with the Department of Chinese Studies (History), University of Liverpool.

The work of Lou Ye, one of the so-called “Sixth Generation” directors, is very much a reaction against the commercial epics made by the so-called “Fifth Generation” directors such as Zhang Yimou. In 2009, Lou released Spring Fever in defiance of a five-year filmmaking ban imposed by the Chinese government. Spring Fever is at once a universal story on the destructiveness of love, and a very sharp political commentary on gender, desire, nihilism and death in contemporary Chinese society.
