China's unprecedented growth has placed it on the verge of overtaking the United States as the world's preeminent power. But what type of power will China become? In today's interconnected and globalized world, the answer affects each and every one of us.

Will China use its strength to dominate its neighbors and become a 21st century empire, or will China's youth lead the country towards democracy? Whether it's a peaceful rise or potential threat, China's 21st century emergence as a great world power will change the lives of everyone. This DVD contains the 86 minute theatrical version of China: The Rebirth of an Empire, winner of three awards for BEST DOCUMENTARY, as well as a special features section containing deleted footage and behind-the-scenes interviews with the directors.

A member of a small group of intellectuals and artists, performs a series of symbolic ritual suicides--burial by earth, water, and fire--on the first day of each season, and plans to publicly end his life for good in a final ice burial. Inspired by a real-life performance-art suicide (according to the opening commentary), Frozen explores a rarely glimpsed youth subculture of post-Tiananmen Square Beijing, and finds a mood of hopelessness. Wang Xiaoshuai's deliberate direction and unadorned shooting style has won accolades for its simplicity and directness, highlighted in two genuine performance-art pieces: the first a stomach churning document of two men eating a bar of soap, and the second the shivering ice burial. It's an effective approach for those scenes, where self-torture becomes a desperate grasp for sensation in a numbing existence, but elsewhere the anger and frustration of the film dissipates in long, rambling discussions and a meandering pace. Part of that style came from necessity: the guerrilla production was shot in secret and smuggled out of the country. The director finished it in Amsterdam and signed it "Wu Ming" (meaning "no one") out of fear of reprisals from the Chinese government. In the years since its release, Wang Xiaoshuai has come forth as the director, but the alias appropriately remains on the prints. A film that gives voice to a generation of alienated young adults desperate to be heard, it remains banned in China. --Sean Axmaker [less]

AWARD FROM 3 INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

PUSAN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

ROTTERDAM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

TOKYO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

A slow-burning story of a graduate student who apprentices himself to the magazine editor that stole his girlfriend. The young man quickly becomes the trusted protege of his ostensible enemy, and even when he loses his new lover to the same man, what seems like a quest for revenge becomes something else altogether. Promising debut from one of South Korea's few female directors.


As he tries to go on with his routine, an editor friend asks Wonsang to write a magazine article on Marguerite Duras that's late in coming, Wonsang agrees but finds out that the magazine publisher was the reason his girlfriend dumped him. When he delivers the article, the publisher, Han Yoonshik, mistakenly dresses Wonsang down for being the late writer. Rather than be angry, Wonsang asks for and gets the writing job. Yoonshik takes a liking to Wonsang and when Wonsang offers to be his driver, he readily agrees and Wonsang more and more also becomes Yoonshik's personal assistant.

On assignment, Wonsang meets Park Sungyeon, a freelance photographer and part time veterinarian, and is immediately smitten by her full time free spirit. He persuades her to take a job at the magazine but soon Yoonshik stakes a claim on this new catch. Disturbed that he might lose out again to Yoonshik, Wonsang begs Sungyeon not to sleep with Yoonshik and Sungyeon finds herself drawing closer to Wonsang.

One night Wonsang finds Hyeok distraught over her family troubles, and has sex with her. The next day she pronounces that she is probably pregnant and announces their marriage plans. Yoonshik's needs also take up more of Wonsang's time and as a result he fails his thesis exam and his plans to study abroad are dashed. And his ex-girlfriend threatens to tell Yoonshik who Wonsang really is?? [less]

Based on true events that shocked Japan, this story of abandoned siblings is a "harrowing, tender film" (The New York Times) that "unfolds with leisurely beauty" (LA Weekly). Filmed over a year and featuring a performance by 12-year-old Yagira Yuya that won the Best Actor prize at the 2004 Cannes International Film Festival, this "haunting" (Newsday) tale is "heartbreakingly brilliant" (The Boston Globe). A childlike mother of four sneaks her children into their new apartment as if it were a game. One of the game’s rules is that only Akira, the oldest, can go outside. Their mother leaves, first for a month, then possibly forever. As the money runs out and the utilities are shut off, Akira struggles to take care of his brother and sisters, determined that they stay safe and together. [less]
