Dragons & Tigers
Director: Xu Ruotao

This Chinese experimental-fiction-documentary—poetic, quasi-plotless, adorned with groovy pop hits—dazzlingly combines ghost stories and “ruin porn” to form a celluloid psycho-collage. Wandering souls seek connections with one another and a lost collective history among the remnants of an abandoned Chinese oil town.
