'Til Madness Do Us Part
aka Feng ai
First screened in September 2013
Director: Wang Bing. Documentary record of life inside a mental hospital in the Yunnan Province of southern China.
Harrowing 4-hour stay in Chinese asylum; peeks outside harrow, too. Sensitive but too long. Context thin.
One shouldn't extrapolate broadly from this document to larger truths about contemporary China, though surely some inhere. For many reasons, rare and valuable.
