Screen/Society--Cine-East: East Asian Cinema--Memory Project [China]--"Investigating My Father"

White 107 (White Lecture Hall)
Film Screening: "Investigating My Father" (Wu Wenguang, 2016, 80 min, China, in Chinese w/English subtitles, Color, Digital) / "Investigating My Father" is a film made by a son to investigate his father's history to see how he changed from a man of the "old society" to a man of the "new society" after 1949. It documents the process of the son's investigation over twenty years into his father's history before 1949, which he had kept away from his son. The father was a landowner's son and an ex-Kuomintang Air Force pilot, who remained in mainland China after 1949. For survival, he tried to transform himself from a man of the "old society" to a man of the "new society." "Investigating My Father" is however not a film just about a father. Since the filmmaker is the son himself, the film also inevitably tells a story that unravels between a father and a son./ About the filmmaker: Wu Wenguang was born in South-Western China's Yunnan province in 1956. In 2005, Wu co-founded the independent art space Caochangdi Workstation with Wen Hui in Beijing. Since then, Wu found two main projects: Village Documentary Project (found in 2005) and Folk Memory Project (found in 2010)./ Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3wW6CNmhAA/ Presented by Duke University Libraries.

Through Joshua Oppenheimer's footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. This unprecedented film initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence.
