The Observer

by/di Rita Andreetti. Italy, China 2018, 76′, o.v. ita sub 

Agosto 2014: l’undicesima edizione del Beijing Independent Film Festival, viene fatta chiudere: un documentario dal tema delicato, “The Spark”, diretto dal regista Hu Jie, ha attirato su di sè le ire del Governo. The Observer è il ritratto di un artista cinese e dello straordinario lavoro che attraverso il suo cinema, ha regalato alla ricerca storica, contribuendo a dissolvere la nebbia di un passato a lungo oscurato.

In August 2014 the 11th Beijing Independent Film Festival was shut down. The Government couldn’t tolerate the screening of some ‘sensitive’ works, particularly a historical documentary called “Spark”. ‘The Observer’ is the portrait of the extraordinary and undetected work of this Chinese dissident artist, Hu Jie. Despite making huge contributions to historical research by uncovering essential testimonies from China’s past, his body of work hasn’t been recognized and he has been long blacklisted. This film is animated by the urgency of giving him his silenced voice back.
