In this landmark documentary, residents of the historic town of Fengjie fight forced evacuation and government corruption over the building of the world's largest dam.
China's Three Gorges Dam, the largest ever-built on earth, has displaced millions of local residents whose towns and villages have been flooded. Fengjie, a city that has thrived along the Yangtze River for a thousand years, has only a few months left before being submerged completely under water. Its citizens contend with administrators and each other over the residences in 'New Fengjie', allocated via lottery and far smaller than the homes they've worked a lifetime to build. Communist collectivism gives way to individual ruthlessness, while the community battles against bureaucratic mismanagement.
Shot over two years, BEFORE THE FLOOD is a breathtaking achievement in verité-style documentary filmmaking. Directors Yan Yu and Li Yifan observe the death of a city, from streets teeming with life to a ghost town echoing with the sound of sledgehammers. A real-life disaster movie, BEFORE THE FLOOD has won awards around the world and inspired Jia Zhangke's Still Life, shot in the same city. This profound film shows the human effects of one of history's grandest social engineering projects, reflecting on the loss of both home and heritage.
