This August’s “M+ Screenings: City Limits” presents 15 video films that look closely at the social, economic and environmental issues related to urban development over the past two decades. Ou Ning, Cai Fei and the U-thèque film collective produced a 40-minute black-andwhite film SanYuanLi, which takes a close look at the rapid urbanization of Guangzhou in southern China. The struggling lives of the inhabitants of the “urban village”, San Yuan Li, are presented through the use of montages, a variety of interesting camera angles and shaky camera movements. By juxtaposing quick and slow camera movements, Tsai Ming-liang’s Walker contrasts the chaos and tranquility in downtown Hong Kong by following in the footsteps of a monk. The monk’s self-assured paces through a crowded street show his imperviousness to the stress and excitement that most city people seem to display.
