PROPOSITIONS
Selected examples of a New Cinema

Rao Hui (the film's screenwriter who plays a fictionalised version of himself) is a post-Tiananmen intellectual whose life has stagnated. He writes film scripts that will never be produced and he substitutes his cinephilia for real achievement in his life. On the basis that writers invent characters to explore the activities they can only imagine, our author creates a story within the story in which his protagonist, Lin Hao, is an outlaw on the run. Lin is constantly moving, forming a liaison with an enigmatic woman (played by the director Guo Xiaolu) as he traverses the whole of China from Guangdong to the village of Mohe, the northernmost place in China. There, he will see the Northern Lights, and fact and fiction will coalesce under their magical influence.

This film is shown together with Min xin pian.
