One of the most accomplished documentarians of Chinese cinema, Wang Bing turns his camera to the death bed of a woman in Southern China in his Golden Leopard-winning new film. Ailing from Alzheimer’s, the titular character is on her final days, waiting for the inevitable as she gets into daily chatter with her family members. Director Bing challenges the audience as he bravely and unsentimentally points his camera to the face of death. Bing doesn’t provide us with any information about Mrs.Fang’s past or her relationship, but finds an unforgettable story that is raw, universal, and visually arresting in her departure from the world.

The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
