Conflict of Worlds and Ages
Conflict of Worlds and Ages is a floating and riding documentary about south and southeast China. The movie confronts the poor horizontal countryside with the vertical cities, the world of inherited values with the new Chinese economy that is an idiosyncratic mixture of traditions, Marxism and the Western market economy.
Stories of partner relationships serve as the starting point for a study of conscience (consciousness) and its relation to reality, which is, however, shot as a suicidal attack upon the faith in the truthfulness of the documentary (which is only dogma, distorted reality). And so the love affairs of a father bringing up two daughters become a peculiar experimental verification of film theories as the screenplay was written by the author together with C. G. Jung, Epstein, Kracauer, Balázs, Vertov, Bazin, Metz and Deleuze.
