The Chinese Mayor

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A nearly-unprecedented glimpse into local Chinese politics, Hao’s film is subtly self-aware, low-key and quietly devastating. With unbelievable access, Hao follows Datong mayor Geng Yanbo as he attempts to work against the system, amidst controversy and constant setbacks, to reimagine one of China’s most polluted cities. When the mayor’s ambition meets the realities of a poor and desperate population, a camera is improbably present, giving is an illuminating and essential view of China from the ground view.
