Mrs. Fang

NAME OF FILM: MRS. FANG

DIRECTOR(S): Wang Bing

STARRING:

GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: “Wang Bing’s latest documentary trains its camera very tightly on the face of a bedridden elderly woman suffering from Alzheimer’s in a small rural Chinese village. For a while, it seems as though Mrs. Fang is content to use the camera as a tool to unflinchingly record a human being close to her final breath. Yet Wang Bing is after something completely different, as the filmmaker goes into other territory, somehow more and less tangible than a portrait of dying.”
