Please join us at the historic Michigan Theater for a CCS Chinese Independent Film Event. The evening will begin with a reception at 6:00pm to meet with Yi Sicheng (易思成), the coordinator of the Yunnan Multi-Culture Visual Festival (Yunfest), and independent film directors Cong Feng(丛峰) and Mao Chenyu(毛晨雨), followed by a 7:00pm screening of Cong Feng’s “Stratum 1: The Visitors (地层1：来客)” (2012) in the main theater.
Film description: One night, two men meet in an abandoned building and share memories of their past lives. They leave the building and roam in the night, wandering through a heavily textured landscape of ruins, and then find themselves returning back to the abandoned building, only to see that it has changed, collapsed, disappeared. With a visual approach that blends fictional and documentary elements, Cong Feng’s Stratum 1 is a rumination on ruins and the transformative roles of space and place in contemporary China.
