Les États généraux du film documentaire 2016 Special Screenings Ta’ang

Wang Bing
2016 - Chine - Couleur - 148'

A civil war has been smouldering for decades in Myanmar’s Kokang region, which is home to the Ta’ang people. When their lives are once again in danger in spring 2015, it’s mostly the women and children who flee over the border to China. Wang Bing accompanies a few of these communities thrown together by fate. They wander the remote mountains with few possessions, camp in makeshift compounds and can sometimes earn a few yuan during the sugarcane harvest.
