Quitting Zuo tian ( visu )
1 edition published in 2003 in Chinese and held by 212 libraries worldwide
This is the story of Jia Hongsheng, (playing himself) a star of Chinese movies and television circa 1990, who, while appearing onstage in "Kiss of the Spider Woman" in 1992 began smoking pot, quickly progressing to heroin, with a resultant spiral down into professional and personal dysfunction. Nearly all of the other characters in the film, his parents (also professional actors), fellow inmates at a psychiatric hospital, and professional colleagues, play themselves. The film is a fragmented re-enactment of Jia's life from roughly 1992-95; what emerges is a portrait of individual depression and a study in generational division and social malaise. It suggests that Beijing is not so different from New York or Los Angeles-a big, impersonal city that draws ambitious young people from the provinces and subjects them to temptation, loneliness, and danger

A young victim of the Cultural Revolution, Lao Gar, finds himself assigned from labouring to teaching a group of semi-literate children in a nearby village. He gradually abandons teaching them the official line by rote learning. Instead he encourages self expression under the influence of his increasingly hallucinatory encounters with a young mute cowherd who seems to represent a state of existence outside language. These visual and aural hallucinations are amplified by Yunan landscapes and draw Lao Gar further into a potentially creative conflict between language and non-language, the former symbolic of official culture, the latter of a world of mystery and uncertainty
