Life on a string by Kaige Chen( visu )
11 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in Chinese and held by 297 libraries worldwide
A blind musician has sustained himself with the belief that his blindness can be cured but only after he has broken 1000 strings on his sanxian (a traditional three-stringed guitar). Although he has broken 995 he is now an old man approaching death who continues to roam the countryside with his restless young disciple promoting peace and harmony. This is not a conventional narrative but a fable with an epic quality which explores the chasm between faith and magic, authority and disobedience, sacrifice and consummation. Kaige sees it as a plea for the rejuvenation of Chinese culture, civilization and identity, a plea which the Chinese authorities saw to be in some way subversive since they banned the film's circulation in China

Liu's initial fascination with the mechanics of moving pictures quickly develops into a visionary understanding of cinema's metaphysical and political potential

This long standing project was delayed by the restrictions on feature film production during the Cultural Revolution and is one of a number of film adaptations of 20th century literary classics which have been slowly emerging since 1977. While the fatalism of the novel is apparently toned down this remains an atmospheric study of the effects of oppressive economic and social conditions on individual lives in Beijing of the 1920's. It is about a young man's attempt to earn a living pulling a rented rickshaw with the aim of becoming independent by earning enough to buy his own rickshaw. He is trapped into an ill matched marriage with the daughter of the agency boss and strikes up a friendship with his neighbour, a young woman who has been sold into prostitution by her father

7 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in Chinese and held by 139 libraries worldwide
The fifty year friendship and love between two Beijing-style opera singers--from boyhood to middle age--becomes intertwined with their on stage roles. Dieye (Leslie Cheung) acts the female role of "Concubine" and Xiaolou (Zhang Fengyi) as the "King". Dieye feels betrayed when Xiaolou marries Juxian (Gong Li) and the two no longer perform together. During the Cultural Revolution, in a publicly humiliating re-education "struggle session" by the Red Guard, Xiaolou politically denounces the effeminate Dieye, who then exposes Juxian's past as a courtesan, causing her to suicide. A decade later following a period of liberalization, Dieye and Xiaolou are once again able to perform their signature opera in their traditional roles. Set against the backdrop of China's tumultuous social change, from the warlord era through the Cultural Revolution, it explores issues of gender, sexual, and political identity

Hong Fen ( visu )
8 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in Chinese and English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
This beautifully filmed drama is set in 1949 Shanghai and tells the fortunes of two women friends, both prostitutes, in love with the same wealthy man. They escape the zealots in the Chinese Revolutionary Guard by fleeing their brothel as it's being closed down. The social and political history of China during this turbulent time is the background to their life histories and their various relationships. Great care is given to accurately recapturing the period feel of the domestic and public life with the "fugitive" device providing access to the interiors of homes where the women hide. The film is suspenseful illustrating and evoking the plight of many in China who had to hide in an attempt to live an everyday, inconspicuous, unbetrayed life
