Beijing in the age of film



23 April 2013 15:31

A fascinating short documentary below about a Frenchman living in Beijing who has made it his mission to save discarded film negatives portraying everyday life in China in the period when film photography was commonplace, starting around 1985 until digital photography took over in 2005.

As noted in the film's synopsis, this is a twenty-year period when China began to open up, and when its people started 'prospering, travelling, consuming, having fun'.
