Tie Xi is a massive industrial complex in northeastern China's Shenyang province. Built during the Japanese occupation of China and restructured with Soviet support after World War II, it is the country's oldest and largest manufacturing center. From the postwar period to the 1980s, the thriving factories employed more than a million workers, but like other state-run industries they began their collapse in the early 1990s. In West of the tracks, filmmaker Wang Bing documents the slow, inevitable death of an obsolete manufacturing system. Between 1999 and 2001 he meticulously filmed the lives of the last factory workers, a class of people once promised glory during the Chinese revolution. Now trapped by economic change, the workers become deeply moving film heroes in this modern epic. The film is an engrossing portrait of Chinese society in transition. Cahiers du Cinema compares Wang Bing to the great Russian writers and calls his film "a masterful production, an open file on realism. "West of the tracks" opens up a new and radical era in cinematography."
Fengming( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in Chinese and English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winter in China. A town in the snow. Night is falling. Wrapped in her red coat, an elderly woman walks through a housing complex to her modest apartment. Inside, Fengming settles into her armchair and remembers.. She begins to recount the gripping and almost unbelievably heartrending story of her troubled experiences as a once-ardent member of the socialist movement - a former journalist accused of harboring right-wing tendencies, separated from her family, and sent to a re-education camp where she endured hard labor, starvation, and humiliation.. Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival.. "Gripping. A sweeping saga. FENGMING stands alongside first-person precedents like Shirley Clarke’s 'Portrait of Jason' and Errol Morris’s 'The Fog of War' in its ability to wrest powerful effects from the deceptively simple setup of a lone raconteur." - Artforum

Ku qian = Bitter money( Visual )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in Chinese and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The people in Wang Bing's BITTER MONEY live in filthy, cramped apartments, stare at their phones for far too long, spend time on their balconies overlooking drab streets in which all the buildings look the same, and work long hours for little pay in noisy and stiflingly hot garment factories. The city of Huzhou, where the film is shot, is home to 18,000 clothing factories. They are staffed by about 300,000 workers, many of them migrants from rural areas in the surrounding provinces. BITTER MONEY follows a handful of these workers, both at work where they may labor for more than 12 hours a day and in their off-hours, as they hang around shabby dorms drinking, dreaming of home, worrying about getting paid, and trying to decide whether their jobs are worth keeping. In one telling moment, a young woman considers joining a pyramid scheme, saying "They can't scam me because I don't have any money." BITTER MONEY opens with two teenage cousins leaving for Huzhou. The packed train is a portent of things to come, with some passengers forced to sleep in the bathroom, and others involved in conversations on subjects like poisonous gases in the workplace. The factories where the cousins and other workers end up aren't like the massive, futuristic tech assembly lines whose images we've grown accustomed to. Rather, these are mom-and-pop operations in which workers are paid by the piece, and harassment is common. Wang Bing brings his signature approach to the subject, never offering an overt condemnation of a system that promises a better life to rural youth, but entraps them in a grindingly dull existence. The camera watches carefully, lingering on shots, moving from one conversation to another. More powerful than any commentary, this technique captures the contours of the characters' lives, trapped as they are in abusive relationships, oppressive jobs, and dispiriting surroundings

The eldest, Yingying, is her sisters' primary caretaker, shouldering responsibilities far beyond her years

Les hommes de la forêt 21. "Gabon, 2007. Un chantier forestier: Tous les matins, la route est longue qui mène du camp des forestiers au cœur de la brousse. Là, deux hommes, deux bûcherons - un maître-abatteur et son élève - travaillent côte à côte. Ils tronçonnent d'immenses arbres qui s'effondrent avec fracas. Chaque jour, au cœur de la forêt gabonaise, ils risquent leur vie dans ce "travail de garçon", comme ils disent. De retour au camp, chez eux, ils vivent chacun dans l'écho de cette lutte quotidienne. Le premier vit seul, loin des siens ; il fréquente assidûment l'église évangélique. L'autre, jeune père, prend soin de sa famille ; bon vivant, il se rend quand il peut à la ville. Leurs destins se croisent puis se séparent."
A l'ouest des rails [Tie xi qu by Bing Wang( Visual )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Shenyang, dans la Chine profonde, Tie Xi est un gigantesque complexe industriel né au temps de l'occupation japonaise. Il a ensuite prospéré jusqu'à compter un million d'ouvriers avant 1990. Wang Bing a filmé de 1999 à 2001 la lente agonie des usines et des hommes dans l'effondrement final d'un système obsolète. En suivant au quotidien la descente aux Enfers d'une classe ouvrière autrefois promise à d'autres gloires par la Révolution chinoise, Wang Bing nous plonge au coeur d'une épopée moderne et il élève ces hommes et ces femmes au rang des plus bouleversants héros de cinéma. Chacune des quatre parties intitulées Rouille I (116mn), Rouille II (124mn), Vestiges (176mn) et Rails (135mn) peut se voir indépendamment, car elles correspondent à la même histoire, mais vue d'un point différent
