I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY
Directed by Ying Liang
A Chinese mother gets a home visit from the police because her daughter, a dissident filmmaker living in Hong Kong, is planning yet another critical film about China. She hasn’t seen her daughter for five years but sets off to talk to her, in spite of her failing health. Based on director Ying Liang’s personal experience of living in exile, I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY is a combined examination of politics and family tragedy.
