Old Stone [Lao shi]
Directed By: Johnny Ma
2016 / Mandarin / 80 mins
In this lean thriller, director Johnny Ma examines the Kafkaesque bureaucracy of the Chinese health care system and the maddening futility of doing the right thing in a bureaucratic society. The film’s neo-realist style of gritty storytelling has earned acclaim from critics.
