The 49th Ann Arbor Film Festival: Artist Talk with Wang Bing

“Wang’s epic documentaries define the brave political outspokenness, tenacity and artistic sophistication that continues to inspire a new and ambitious generation of young Chinese filmmakers” - Harvard Film Archive

Wang Bing is an artist working at the forefront of the recent energetic movement in documentary filmmaking originating from China. Please join Mr. Wang (who will participate via Skype) and UM Professor Markus Nornes for a discussion of his video, Crude Oil, an 840-minute observation of oil workers in Qinghai Province. This work will be exhibited in the lower level of the University of Michigan Work Gallery (306 S. State Street) from March 11 through April 1.

The 49th Ann Arbor Film Festival takes place March 22–27. For more information on North America’s longest-running independent and experimental film festival, please visit
