Liu Jiayin
In 2004, at 23, while she was still a student at the Beijing Film Academy, Liu Jiayin stunned the world by shooting Oxhide with a small DV camera but in Cinemascope in her parents’ 50 square metre apartment. With Oxhide II the previous formal radicalism takes a further step forward: keeping the Cinemascope ratio, it breaks down an even smaller space and organizes its 133 minutes into 9 shots of uneven lengths and varied angles that go around a dinner table/workshop. Within this minimalist framework, several layers of emotion and narration intersect.
LIu Jiayin
Liu Jiayin was born in Beijing in 1981 and grew up there. She studied at the Beijing Film Accademy, specializing in screenwriting. Her first feature film Oxhide, the winner of several awards including the Fipresci award at the Berlinale, the Golden DV Award at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and the Dragons and Tigers Award at the Vancouver Film Festival, is considered the most important Chinese film of recent years. Its sequel, Oxhide II has been equally successful and received an award at the CinDi in Seoul and was presented at the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in Cannes. She is currently teaching at the Beijing Film Academy and developing the final part of her trilogy, Oxhide III.
