Director: Guo Xiaolu/2009/ Colour/98mins
Cast: Huang Lu, Wei YiBo, Geoffrey Hutchings
Acclaimed novelist Guo Xiaolu branches successfully into film directing with her second feature, which won the top prize at Locarno Film Festival. She, a Chinese follows Mei, a typical Chinese teen from a rural village. But her pop/punk odyssey would lead her from being a gangster's girlfriend in Chongqing to becoming an illegal immigrant stranded on the bands of the river Thames. Structured into chapters like a novel, the film is less a character study of youthful ennui than a portrayal of nation-less globalization.
