Yumen lies in Gansu province, in the dry North-West of China. Once a flourishing city that profited from the oil boom in the region, today Yumen is a ghost town in which hungry souls roam the ruined landscape looking for human contact and a shared past. Shot entirely on the long-forgotten medium of 16mm, the film combines performance art with socialist realism, ruin voyeurism and an homage to a forgotten industrial age.
This film is part of the special series "Chinese Independent Cinema".
