The Festival special focus on Wang Bing includes three UK premieres of his films Crude Oil, West of the Tracks and Man with No Name alongside regional premieres of The Ditch and Coal Money.

Wang Bing is a leading figure of the exciting documentary movement within Chinese cinema over the last decade. He is renowned for his epic documentaries, from the vast nine-hour panorama of a dying industrial factory town in West of the Tracks to Crude Oil’s real-time portrait of the working day of oil extraction workers.

His films offer profound meditations on history, industry and human suffering caused by the inexorable progress of modern China, forging a rare intimacy with everyday life.
