Overloaded Peking is a documentary about Beijing and the Chinese modernisation we did in 2001 (MDDM, abelvideo).
It features a long and interesting interview (15:32) with a young Jia Zhangke about cinema, changes of the young Chinese generations, modernization of the country, the internet, censorship, and much more.
In 2001, Jia Zhangke movies (along with many other Chinese director’s works) were forbidden in China. Eventually, Jia Zhangke emerged as one of the most famous new Chinese directors. In the documentary appears also Zhao Tao (during Jia Zhangke’s interview) and Dj Gaohu. Please view the documentary at 480p, otherwise, the subtitles will be unreadable.
