When feminism encounters New Documentary Movement: an uncompleted academic discussion
      
LU Xinyu

ABSTRACT  This article starts with the “encounter” between feminists in the “International Symposium on Chinese Women and Visual Representation” and Chinese documentary filmmaker Xu Tong’s Wheat Harvest, explores the viewpoints and standpoints of feminism activists. With the analysis of the similarities and differences between the independent documentary perspective and the feminist stance, the author elaborates more deeply on why Chinese female directors do not have the consciousness of “feminism.” China’s independent documentary shows how the issue of feminism in China is intertwined with China’s various complex socio-political issues. The question raised is precisely how to promote the development of feminism and documentary together to work for an equal and just society itself.

KEYWORDS: Feminism; Wheat Harvest; Independent Documentary; the Lowest Rung
