The Blue Kite
This critically acclaimed award-winner, banned in China for its harshly realistic portrayal of life under Chairman Mao, is an epic look at recent Chinese history and how politics affect personal lives. The film follows young Tietou growing up in the midst of the Cultural Revolution, watching colleagues denounce each other and neighbors spy on one another. Soon, Tietou's family and friends -- and even Tietou -- get caught in the violent upheaval.
