Movie Info

One of the most important documentary filmmakers of his generation, and perhaps the preeminent chronicler of contemporary China, Wang Bing returns to the non-fiction realm - following his first fiction feature, THE DITCH (2010) - with THREE SISTERS, a patient, penetrating, and heartbreaking portrait of three young girls living and laboring with their family in a small mountain village in southwest China. As he so clearly demonstrated in his towering, 9-hour WEST OF THE TRACKS (2003), Wang is a master of long-form documentary filmmaking, and here he portrays the lives of his three protagonists, as well as the community and the landscapes around them, with an extraordinary sensitivity, openness, and clarity of vision.
