Three Sisters

Saturday September 30
Director: Wang Bing
2012 / 153min / DCP

Where Bitter Money sees the migrant worker experience through the lens of those who travel for work, the sorrowful, piercing Three Sisters looks at those who remain to subsist in the old, worn-out villages—in this case a trio of siblings sustaining themselves as almost-orphans, with a particular focus on the eldest, 10-year-old Yingying, who shoulders a more than adult-sized burden of labor, and who, vulnerable yet seemingly indomitable in her endurance, emerges as one of the most haunting documentary subjects of recent memory.

Q&A with filmmaker Wang Bing on Saturday, September 30th, moderated by Herb Tam, curator at Museum of Chinese in America
