Chinese Docu Seminar 1.mp3
The year 2007 marked two important dates in recent Chinese history: the 70th anniversary of the Nanking massacre, highlighted by the government and media, and the 50th anniversary of the Anti-rightist Movement, which passed virtually unnoticed. Independent documentary filmmakers have explored alternative accounts of both events, raising the question of their role in addressing controversial aspects of recent history. How can documentary film move beyond the individual memories and subjectivities to bring about an informed public discussion of the past, as for example in Rithy Panh's work on the Khmer Rouge genocide? The discussion will focus on how documentary filmmakers balance oral history with the task of documenting the past in a systematic manner that opens a public space for its discussion.
