The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

The documentary film Three Sisters tells the story of Ying (10 years old), Zhen (6 years old) and Fen (4 years old) who live alone and in extreme poverty in the high mountains of the Yunnan region. The father works in the town a few hundred kilometers away and the mother has left long ago. The little girls spend their days working in the fields or wandering in the village. Through Wang’s compassionate eye, the daily struggle of the villagers is captured, testifying to the inequality and unfairness present in the midst of the country’s economic boom.

This screening is part of the public programme of Ulrike Ottinger: China. The Arts ­– The People, Photographs and Films from the 1980s and 1990s.
