Behemoth
director:
Zhao Liang

Beginning with a mining explosion in Mongolia and ending in a ghost city west of Beijing, political documentarian Zhao Liang’s visionary new film details, in one breathtaking sequence after another, the social and ecological devastation behind an economic miracle that may yet prove illusory. “This is a film about the devastation of Inner Mongolia and the systematic annihilation of its migrant workers, but it is no mere coup d’oeil of righteous advocacy. It is a work of film art.” (Village Voice)
