You Are the Days to Come

You Are the Days to Come

This international feature offers a rare glimpse into the art scene in China during the decade that was punctuated by the Tiananmen square massacre in 1989.

The film draws on the filmmakers reflections and lived experience documenting the work of six key figures in the contemporary art movement working across fine arts, performance, music and literature during a period of massive political change and pressure.

This film by Ronja Yu offers a portrait of China in the 1980s as seen through the works of six artists who gave voice to a new national consciousness in a time of immense change.” Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
