— By ROBERT ADANTO
Filmed in China, ‘The Rising Tide’ (2008) by filmmaker Robert Adanto, presents the work of artists Cao Fei, Xu Zhen, Yang Yong, Wang Qingsong, Chen Qiulin, Birdhead, and Zhang O. Through their work, mainly in photography and video, the film examines the collision between the present and the future, and the confusion and ambiguity that characterize the new China. ‘The Rising Tide’ captures a momentous time in China’s history while exploring the work of artists who comment with intelligence, wit, foreboding and nostalgia. This excerpt features an interview with Zhang O. For more information and the film, visit:www.therisingtidefilm.com.
