Winner of the Silver Bear in Berlin in 1990, Xei Fei s film is a politically daring tale of urban alienation and despair. A former prisoner arrives back in his native Beijing to find that he has no family or prospects or friends, just his underworld contacts trying to drag him back into a life of crime ... Black Snow emerges as a powerful study of displacement. It takes place at the shattering juncture of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 and vividly captures the social impact of potential political change at that time.

The film, which won a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival back in 1990, deals with the story of a young man, Quanzi, who has just returned to Beijing after three years in prison for his part in a violent street crime incident. He tries to find a way to fit back into life, but times have changed and his friends have moved on, been killed or arrested, leaving him feeling a bit of an outsider. There's a younger generation now, fascinated by western clothes and pop music, a window of opportunity for the enterprising, mainly criminal, businessman. Quanzi starts selling counterfeit goods from a stall and even finds himself working as protection for a young up-and-coming singer at the local bar, but it's clear that he doesn't fit in with the interests of modern youth, and the danger of the lure of his violent past is always present.Read more ›
