Self-Portrait: Sphinx in 47 KM

CHINA / 2017 / 94 min
Zhang Mengqi


An old woman speaking falteringly about the sadness of her life; a young girl drawing pictures—a touching portrayal of the intimate flow of time in a quiet village. This was made prior to Self-Portrait: Window in 47 KM (YIDFF2019 International Competition), also set in the same village.
