SP 12 Metropolis Beijing

On the occasion of the sister-city anniversary between Berlin and Beijing we dedicate this programme to China's capital: A pulsating metropolis caught between modernisation and tradition and the embracing of market-based economy and ideological dogma. Beijing polarises as much as it fascinates, while incidentally generating multifaceted examples of filmmaking. This year, interfilm's Metropolis focus presents a collection of short films in which the 3000 year-old city and its inhabitants play the major role.
