A film by Wu Wenguang (吴文光), 1995; 80 minutes (Mandarin with English subtitles)

A sequel to Wu Wenguang’s film Bumming in Beijing (CCS Film Event – Fall 2007), At Home in the World follows five of the Beijing artists featured in the original film who are now scattered to the four corners of the world. An intimate depiction of their expectations, anxieties and the contradictions that frame their lives, and how these experiences have shaped their lives.

Wu Wenguang (born 1956 in Yunnan) is an independent documentary filmmaker. He is known internationally as one of the founding figures of Chinese independent documentary. His first film, Bumming in Beijing: The Last Dreamers, was unique in that it featured a large amount of handheld camera work and unscripted interviews. This was a stark contrast to Chinese documentaries produced previously, which were generally carefully planned and controlled. Other films by him include My Time in Red Guard (1993), Jiang Hu: Life on the Road (1999), Dance with Farm Workers (2001), Your Name is Outlander (2003), and Fuck Cinema (2005)
