From BFI website:
Chinese cinema seemed pole-axed in the 1990s by the shift from state control to the private sector, but it suddenly looks rejuvenated. With everything from big-budget spectacles to small, digital indies setting new creative highs, Tony Rayns has curated a selection of dazzling London premieres.
This selection of movies, all but one of them new to London and some well overdue, offers a spot-sample of terrific work in fiction and documentary, mainstream entertainment, arthouse challenges and avant-garde comedy. China still faces countless social and political problems, but its film culture has never been in better shape.
