Year2014 Duration65 min. DirectorHu Jie, AI XiaoMing


“The Cultural Revolution was violent and bloody. Yet artists are prepared to play the game of colouring this over, of Maoist propaganda, of the "personality cult" of Mao, of his deification. Posters and interviews of their graphic designers (and of some observers) show how tubes of paint dribbled the lies, to overlay the blood stains.” — Hu Jie and René Viénet
