The dGenerate team have been working feverishly in preparation for Zhao Dayong’s amazing documentary (and dGenerate title) Ghost Town‘s international premiere at the prestigious New York Film Festival. Ghost Town, the only Chinese film in this year’s festival, screens Sunday, September 27 at 2:15 at the Lincoln Center. We strongly advise you to get tickets in advance, as the NYFF screenings always sell out quick. Tickets go on sale this Sunday, September 13.
Jury members Dennis Lim and Scott Foundas had this to say about the film:
- “Ghost Town is one of the most surprising and rewarding films I’ve seen all year, one of the most important films to have emerged from the booming (but still underexplored) field of Chinese independent documentaries.” – Dennis Lim, film critic, Editor of Moving Image Source, New York Film Festival selection committee member
- “I didn’t think there was another Jia Zhangke or Wang Bing lurking out there, but it turns out there is!” – Scott Foundas, film critic, Film Editor of L.A.Weekly, New York Film Festival selection committee member
