The experimental video group Fu Da Jie, initiated and established by Zhao Chuan, Wu Meng and Gao Zipeng in Shanghai, aims at exploring the possibility of video and film in the civil society. They started to shoot this Shanghai Youth in 2009, it took four years to complete this eight-and-a-half-hour documentary. The film tells a story of the ‘Shanghai youth’ who were tranfered to Xinjiang from 1963 to 1966 to support the construction of the peripheral area, after which they continued to petition for more than 30 years since returning to Shanghai. The film presents the constant reflection on their identity of this generation, and depicts their relationship with the state. The film is also featured in the exhibition Salon, Salon: Fine Art Practices from 1972 to 1982 in Profile - A Beijing Perspective.

At 14:00 pm on April 29, Gao Zipeng and Zhao Chuan will come to Inside-Out Art Museum for a conversation on Shanghai Youth. Please stay tuned.
