She is the author of Nine Continents: A Memoir In and Out of China, recipient of the 2017 National Book Critics Circle Award. 

Grand Prix de Genève 2011

A subjective anatomy of contemporary China in the post Marxist era. With a dark, poetic point-of-view, this film depicts people from different classes living in modern Chinese society, contemplating a vast and complex society whose citizens are searching for new beliefs and identities after the country’s great revolutionary days.

Duration: 1 hour, 16 minutes.
