Youth (Spring)
by Wang Bing
2023, China, 212 minutes, Mandarin with English subtitles

Wang Bing follows the intimidating everyday labour of young textile workers in Zhili and captures the invisible reality of China’s extraordinary local economy.
Zhili, 150 km from Shanghai. In this city dedicated to textile manufacturing, young workers come from all the rural regions crossed by the Yangtze River. They are in their early twenties, share dormitories and snack in the corridors. They work tirelessly to be able one day to raise a child, buy a house or set up their own workshop. Between them, friendships and love affairs are made and unmade according to the seasons, bankruptcies and family pressures.

Attention: due to the running time of this film we will start at 19:30h instead of 20:30h!
