Wu Wenguang: Investigating My Father
Investigating My Father
Directed and edited by Wu Wenguang, 80 mins, 2016.
“This film was made by a son to investigate his father’s history and how he changed from a man of the "old society" to a man of the "new society" after 1949. I am the ‘son,’ and so the film is about our relationship.” -- Wu Wenguang
