Editorial Reviews

MEISHI STREET shows ordinary citizens taking a stand against the planned destruction of their homes for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

In order to widen traffic routes for the Olympic Games, the Beijing Municipal Government orders the demolition of entire neighborhoods. Several evictees of Meishi Street, located next to Tiananmen Square, fight through endless red tape and the indifference of fellow citizens for the right to keep their homes. Given video cameras by the filmmakers, they shoot exclusive footage of the eviction process, adding vivid intimacy to their story.

Acclaimed at over two dozen museums and galleries around the world, MEISHI STREET, by renowned visual artist Ou Ning, works as both art and activism, calling worldwide attention to lives being demolished in the name of progress.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is the story of a restaurant and home owner in Beijing's Qianmen district (on Meishi Street), a historically important section of the city as well as a potentially lucrative section for the Chinese government and its upcoming Olympic "show." In the months leading up to his business and home's imminent demolition, Zhang Jinli films his battles with local police, his silent protests, and most importantly -- his vibrant neighborhood, whose inhabitants are being kicked out one by one in the name of economic progress.
