Movie Monday: Crime and Punishment, by Zhao Liang

Crime and Punishment

We’re showing another Zhao Liang documentary this coming Monday: Crime and Punishment (2007), one of his earlier and best works.

As reviewed by Dan Edwards:

Zhao Liang provided one of the most heartrending Chinese documentaries of recent times last year with Petition, an epic work about petitioners living on the fringes of China’s capital. It’s much rarer, however, to see stories about those enforcing the rules in the People’s Republic – the nature of Chinese state institutions means access is usually impossible. Which makes Zhao’s earlier filmCrime and Punishment (Zui Yu Fa, 2007) all the more extraordinary, providing as it does an intimate snapshot of life inside a People’s Armed Police (PAP) station.
