While preparing his film Jiabiangou [The Ditch], Wang Bing travelled to the Gobi Desert, to the exact same places where thousands of people lived and died in the “re-education-through-labour” camps set up by the communist regime in the late fifties. He shot scenes of desert and abandoned bones, which provide evidence of the events of those times buried until now.
