He was an artist, a husband, a father, a patriot, a communist, a woman. Mei Lanfang (1894-1961), the man whose life story inspired Chen Kaige's "Farewell My Concubine", was a Chinese opera singer whose career spanned from the last imperial dynasty to Mao Tse-tung. Surving two Republics and foreign occupations, he is an icon of Chinese opera who specialized in portrayals of female roles, from delicate concubines to fierce warriors. Mei Lanfang's extraordinary career brought him praise and attention from luminaries such as Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Paul Robeson, Bernard Shaw, and Sergei Eisenstein. With precious archival footage never seen outside of Chinese Film Archive, this documentary offers a rare and fascinating look at a leading cultural figure of China. His rich life provides viewers an overview of Chinese nationalism, communism, gender issues and high/pop culture
