Little Girl’s Cheeks CN 2008, R: Ai Weiwei, 78 Min, OmeU

Ai Weiwei initiated a ‘Citizens' Investigation’ into student casualties resulting from the May 12, 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, where poorly constructed ‘tofu-dregs’ school buildings caused an inordinate number of student deaths. Many of the volunteers carrying out the ‘Citizen’s Investigation’ were repeatedly interrogated or otherwise obstructed in their investigations by the authorities. In Little Girl’s Cheeks, we see how by gathering and confirming comprehensive details about the students and interviewing the many grief-stricken and indignant parents and families, the names of over 5,000 students who had perished in the disaster are uncovered.
