Jia Zhang-ke, Still Life, 2006

Still Life is set in Fengjie, 150 miles from the Three Gorges Dam, the hydroelectric project on the Yangtze River that submerged thousands of towns and displaced more than a million people. Shot while Fengjie was being demolished, the film has a powerful documentary impact, as two people travel there separately to look for their missing spouses.
