Nello scenario desolante in cui vive ai margini dell’autostrada, Tony indossa ancora il suo cappello da cowboy e non sembra proprio disposto ad arrendersi...

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.
