Summary, etc.:
Winter in China. A town in the snow. Night is falling. Wrapped in her red coat, an elderly woman walks through a housing complex to her modest apartment. Inside, Fengming settles into her armchair and remembers.. She begins to recount the gripping and almost unbelievably heartrending story of her troubled experiences as a once-ardent member of the socialist movement - a former journalist accused of harboring right-wing tendencies, separated from her family, and sent to a re-education camp where she endured hard labor, starvation, and humiliation.. Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival.. "Gripping. A sweeping saga. FENGMING stands alongside first-person precedents like Shirley Clarkés 'Portrait of Jason' and Errol Morriśs 'The Fog of War' in its ability to wrest powerful effects from the deceptively simple setup of a lone raconteur." - Artforum
