The history of the second murder during the “Cultural Revolution”, that of Bian ZhongYun, beaten to death by her students, on August 5, 1966. Mao will receive, two weeks later, the armband of the “Red Guard” of a student of this high school, for having participated or at least attended this “session of revolutionary criticism” against the assistant principal of the pilot high-school, attached to the Peking University. The English title for this film is a line from a poem by Boris Pasternak in the epilogue of “Dr. Zhivago”. “Though I am gone, I shall return on the third day. / As rafts floating down a river, as a convoy of barges, / the centuries will float to me for judgment, out of the dark”. (Hu Jie)

Hu Jie

Acclaimed internationally for his paintings and woodcuts as well as an oeuvre of more than 30 hard-hitting historical political documentaries, Hu Jie is one of China's leading contemporary artists. Widely credited as the first native artist to frankly depict China's “Great Famine” and the deadly work camps of the late 1950s and early 1960s, his work focuses on individuals who have risked—or lost—their lives to tell the truth about the horrors they endured during the “Cultural Revolution” and “Great Leap Forward”.
