The Women from the Lake of Scented Souls introduced by Xie Fei and Fu Hongxing

    • The Women from the Lake of Scented Souls
    • Xie Fei
    • Winner of the Golden Bear at the 1993 Berlin Film Festival, director Xie Fei's exquisitely detailed period drama marries the relatively straightforward style of the Fourth Generation "scar films" with the ravishing landscapes and dense, visually rich cinematic language of the celebrated Fifth Generation filmmakers.
