Panorama: True/False at Ragtag Cinema
Panorama: All About My Sisters
Opens Jan 17, 2022
Panorama is a new screening series highlighting the full spectrum of the contemporary documentary landscape beyond the festival weekend. Celebrating the True/False ethos and handpicked by the programming team, Panorama focuses on filmmakers who use the non-fiction form to tell their stories in fresh and nuanced ways — and brings a little bit of the magic of the Fest to the rest of the year.
Wang Qiong's bold debut feature explores the personal and psychological impact of China's one-child policy — starting with her own younger sister Jin who was abandoned at birth and survived for a week in a box on the streets before being adopted by their uncle. Filmed over seven years, Qiong takes us inside Jin's daily life as well as interviewing her parents about their painful past, never shying away from the difficult questions. All About My Sisters is an unflinching excavation of family trauma and an expanded portrait of contemporary China.
An Icarus Films release.
