C4 is happy to present “Morning Sun” 八九点钟的太阳 (2003) in English.
“Gripping, relentlessly tragic retelling of life in revolutionary times.” – Hua Hsu, Village Voice
Morning Sun attempts to create an inner history of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (c.1964-1976). It provides a multi-perspective view of a tumultuous period as seen through the eyes – and reflected in the hearts and minds – of members of the high-school generation that was born around the time of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, and that came of age in the 1960s. The film essays a psychological history, attempting a cinematic account of experiences and emotions represented by the people, events and ardor of the period.
