Yang Fudong is a pioneering Chinese filmmaker best known for his Seven Intellectuals in a Bamboo Forest (2003-7), a series of silent, multi-part, black-and-white films that follow a cast of attractive Chinese youths through several surrealistic scenes. Drawing influence from his training as a painter and photographer, as well as the work of Jim Jarmusch, Yang’s films are sequences of slow-moving, tableau-like dreamscapes, more evocative of moods and impressions than any clear narrative. As he says: There is no result, no answer. Show artist insights.

Watching No Snow on the Broken Bridge is a little like watching a photograph appearing in a tray of developing fluid

Adrian Searle is transfixed. Watching No Snow on the Broken Bridge is a little like watching a photograph appearing in a tray of developing fluid. It keeps revealing more of itself, without ever reaching a point of clarity. The photograph seems to be constantly evolving.

Yang Fudong seeks, through vignettes, a poetics . No Snow on the Broken Bridge" includes in-depth coverage of the recent title piece and an overview of his oeuvre to date.

No Snow on the Broken Bridge shows the experiences and emotions that Yang Fudong feels towards this movement and it portrays how his generation fells.

Yang is known to explore themes that are historical, social, and political within his work by juxtaposing contradictions between current social issues, with cultural norms. No Snow on the Broken Bridge shows the experiences and emotions that Yang Fudong feels towards this movement and it portrays how his generation fells. Yang Fudong shows the isolation and alienation young intellectuals feel is today's society. This film is another example of how he captures the feelings of a whole generation in his films.

Though he trained as a painter at the China Academy of Fine Arts, Yang Fudong, one of the most interesting and influential young artists emerging from China today, has always preferred film. His videos and photographs combine and accumulate perspectives, investigating identity through ancient mythology, personal memory and lived experience. His subjects, often in their late 20s and early 30s, seem confused and appear to be hovering between the past and present, or perhaps China's past and present. That split gives them an expectant quality, as if something is going to happen that never quite does.
