International Film Series on Climate Change: 三峡好人 (Still Life)
Lectures & Presentations
The construction of Three Gorges Dam, the largest dam in the world, has left over one million people living along the Yangtze River in central China displaced or evicted from their homes. In Still Life, a man and a woman return to the small town of Fengjie, just upstream of the dam, in search of their estranged spouses. But the film’s drama lies in what they find along the way: their town is being slowly demolished and flooded in order to make way for the dam, washing away along with it their people and their history. Directed by Jia Zhangke.

Climate Change in the Here and Now
