Chinese Film on 1960 Labor Camps Cheered in Venice
A powerful Chinese film on the plight of political prisoners condemned to forced labor camps in the late 1950s wooed critics in Venice on Monday, with some tipping it as a strong contender for the festival's top prize...Shot like a documentary, The Ditch focuses on the last three months of life in an annex camp where the 1,500 prisoners who had survived until then were moved in 1960, as drought ravaged the whole of China.
