Coal Money + Brutality Factory
Two astounding short works by a contemporary master who trains his camera on the human costs of a merciless economy of exploitation. Coal Money follows Chinese truck drivers carrying coal from the mines to the market, encountering criminals and corrupt policemen, haggling with buyers in endless negotiations. Set amid the rubble of a disused factory, Brutality Factory recreates one of the show trials of accused reactionaries that were a feature of the Cultural Revolution. The filmmaker will be in attendance and will also discuss his work in a masterclass.
