-Thoroughly fascinating, engaging and what a great little girl the filmmaker found!
Kay Kay has been filmed since her birth in 1992 and the resulting film offers an engaging insight into modern China.
Filmmaker: Bruno Sorrentino
Kay Kay is the face of modern-day China - a bright, educated and ambitious 20-year-old living in the booming southern city of Guangzhou.
She represents a new generation of middle class Chinese 'only' children, benefiting from China's economic growth as well as the single-minded dedication of her factory-worker parents.
This unique film has followed her for her whole life, filming her and her family every year since her birth in 1992.
It gives a rare, personal narrative to the decades of transformation that China has undergone. From her childhood and school days through to her university life where she struggles to get to grips with China's economic imperatives in the face of environmental issues.
Kay Kay is a charming, engaging guide to modern China, its people and the country's recent economic boom.
The future elite of China's Communist Party are still trained in Mao Zedong's former guerrilla base, an effort to maintain the revolutionary underpinnings of a regime striving to maintain its legitimacy after a year of scandal surrounding disgraced leader Bo Xilai
Weiqi, often referred to as "Go" in English, is arguably the most important game in East Asia, with an estimated thirty million to fifty million players throughout the world. Weiqi is a board game but it is more. It is immersed in more vivid and often contradictory cultural metaphors than any other game in the world. As Chinese politics have changed over the last two millennia, so too has the imagery of the game—from a tool to seek religious enlightenment to military metaphors, one of the noble four arts, one of the condemned "four olds", nationalism, transnationalism, historical elitism, and futuristic hyper rationality.
Anthropologist Marc L. Moskowitz interviews people in China in settings ranging from children's schools to China's elite Beijing University to a park where retired working class men gather to play, from child educators to those reminiscing about their own youth during the Cultural Revolution. What emerges is a fascinating cultural study as people discuss children's education, retirement, China forty years ago and today. We are witness to people's lives, ranging from university students to working class senior citizens, professional players, people who gave up professional careers to become students, and a range of others who all share a love for this extraordinary game.
