Title
Taking Father Home Ying Liang, China, 2006
Citation
A film that questions the lack of positive father figures in the underclass of China, the protagonist learns that exploitation is the way of life in the emerging China.The cheap home-video aesthetic connects in a poignant and immediate way to the poverty of the subject. A heart-rending achievement in the cinema for the underdog.
