Redifing what a documentary is
18 September 2020 | by Robert-1984See all my reviews

Wang Bing's film redefine what documentaries are all about. His long and thorough examination of people's stories and people's lives offers a unique new approach to the bond cinema should be forming with the viewer. Dead Souls is a film about lacking, about keeping memory alive against all odds. Highly recommended.
