Ghost Town Debuts!
If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that the dGenerate Films team had been working hard in anticipation of last Sunday’s international premiere of Zhao Dayong’s Ghost Town. It all paid off, as Ghost Town packed the house and generated extended applause for its depiction of a mountainous village in slow decay.
To all of you in attendance, thanks for coming out. Your support has helped put the newest vanguard of Chinese independent filmmaking on the map. If you feel Ghost Town deserves to be seen by a wider audience, whether on the big or small screen, please get in touch with us or pass the word to your fellow film enthusiasts, professors, programmers, curators, critics, and acquisition colleagues.
Here are some photos from both the screening as well as the post-screening reception at Bamboo 52.
