This exhibition will show case the filmmaker’s two important works inrecent years: Born in Beijing and Mirror of Emptiness.

Documentary Film in Exhibition: Should the meeting point of independent film and contemporary art be limited to viewing constraints? Can we go back to the materiality of film,back to a value system the film auteurs constructed, about social hierarchy and personal experience, about the exploration of media, and to experiences of film that go beyond the limitation of our bodily viewing possibilities?A side from her work as a documentary filmmaker, Ma Li is also on the editorial board of independent publication FilmAuteurs. Accompanying the exhibition, a symposium of various topic sincluding “Female Perspective”, “Redefining Media” and “ Film as Medium” will be organized. Meta Gallery has the pleasure to have the six editorial boardmembers of Film Auteurs in house to introduce the publication and exchange ideas with the audience.
