ALL ABOUT MY SISTERS Now Screening
Wang Qiong's debut film ALL ABOUT MY SISTERS will play for one week, October 15 - 22 at Anthology Film Archives following its sold out screenings at New York Film Festival.
"Astonishing... a major new voice in nonfiction cinema" - New York Film Festival
In her debut film, director Qiong Wang builds a riveting portrait of her family reckoning with the lasting impact of China's one-child policy.
After giving birth to two daughters, Qiong's parents were desperate for a boy. When they learned that they were pregnant with a third daughter, the couple embarked on a path that would affect their family for generations to come. Filming for more than seven years, Ms. Wang courageously investigates her family's shocking history. Intimate, powerful interviews with her parents and siblings and a keen eye for detail create a never-before-seen view of the one-child policy at its peak and the echoes that still haunt a family and their community today.

Reviews of ALL ABOUT MY SISTERS:
Family portraiture of a different kind comprises another of this year’s strongest offerings: Wang Qiong’s All About My Sisters, a searing documentary - Artforum
One should always be hesitant to proclaim a film as part of a new “movement,” but upon watching Wang Qiong’s debut documentary All About My Sisters, I cannot help but wonder if Chinese film is entering a new stage in history. - Reverse Shot
Out of 300 hours of footage and through a lengthy editing process, a slippery, multifaceted story emerges that weaves together a knotty web of fraught family dynamics, shows people as morally complex and emotionally conflicted, and pushes difficult ideas about family and society. - Matt Lloyd Turner, nonlinearities
