"Dumb Men" (Hu Tao, 2018, 86 min, China, Chinese w/ English subtitles, Color, Digital)"People in my hometown call those who are shy and untalkative "touxiuzi". Within my family, the touxiuzi gene is embodied in the members of three generations. As a touxiuzi in our family, I try to uncover and open up the real heart beating under our touxiuzi exterior, yet in the end I only open up myself. The touxiuzi in the family continue to circle in the air above the village and grow in the village's soil." (HT)-- Hu Tao in attendanceAbout The Memory Project:Wu Wenguang, a foundational figure for Chinese independent documentary film, launched The Memory Project in 2010 to document the gathering of oral histories from the rural survivors of China's Great Famine (1958-1961).
