Turn It On: In Search of Lin Zhao’s Soul

In Search of Lin Zhao’s Soul寻找林昭的灵魂, 2004
Directed by Hu Jie胡杰
Mandarin with English subtitles, 116 min.

The Anti-Rightist Campaign of 1957–59 was one of Communist China’s harshest operations against liberal intellectuals. In this era of red terror, Lin Zhao, a student at Peking University, went from being an innocent follower to a fearless critic of the Communist Party. During eight years in prison, she used her own blood and a hairpin to record her thoughts, eking out several hundred thousand words on purloined paper. This film pieces together Lin’s life, her path of resistance, and her death in Shanghai in 1968.

Part of the film festival “Turn It On: China on Film, 2000–2017” cocurated by Ai Weiwei and Wang Fen.

Film screenings are free with museum admission.

Turn It On: Prisoners in Freedom City

Prisoners in Freedom City自由城的囚徒, 2007
Directed by Hu Jia胡佳and Zeng Jinyan曾金燕
Mandarin with Chinese and English subtitles, 36 min.

Civil rights activist Hu Jia was held under house arrest from 2004 to 2008 in the upscale eastern suburbs of Beijing. One day Hu picked up a video camera and began to document things outside the window: his watchers, shepherds tending their flocks, spiders in the rain, and his fellow activist and wife, Zeng Jinyan, going to and from work under the unnervingly close watch of plainclothes police.

Turn It On: Silver City

Silver City白银, 2009
Directed by Li Peifeng李沛峰
Mandarin with Chinese and English subtitles, 98 min.

Because of the West-East Gas Pipeline project and the so-called village urbanization campaign, the people of a long-isolated town in northwest China are removed, by force and deceit, from the land that has sheltered them for generations. The real protagonist of this film is the desolate land that stands in for the restlessness and helplessness of the people.

Turn It On: Sanlidong

Sanlidong三里洞, 2006
Directed by Lin Xin林鑫
Mandarin with English subtitles, 172 min.

In 1955 more than three hundred impassioned youths traveled from Shanghai to the Sanlidong coal mine in Tongchuan, Shaanxi province, with the hope of assisting with the building of China’s northwest territory. Fifty years later, most of them are gone. In fifteen segments, this film documents the workers still living in the region, those who have passed, and a lost era of China’s socialist industrialization.
