In China between the 19th and 20th centuries, the martial arts teacher Qui Jin was put to death by the Qing dynasty. This heroine – nationalist, communist, feminist and queer – and her love story with the female calligrapher Wu Zhuying, is the subject of a tribute by the LA artist Wu Tsang, in a lucid, auteur melodrama.
An anthropologist and esthete, Ancarani observes the life of aristocratic young people in Qatar. Falconry, million dollar auctions, car races and biker expeditions in the desert dunes. A reflection on power and its representation. And, perhaps even more, the need for a return to ancestral origins in a land dedicated to the dissipation of money.
The future. The wretched life of an employee at a multinational company, who is forced to dress up like a hunchback in an emotional rehabilitation program set in the Middle Ages. A dystopian detour for the new couple Abrantes-Rivers, in transit between One Thousand and One Nights and Michael Crichton.
