The FIPRESCI Prize went to Li Xiaofei’s I Am the People_I (China, 2020, 25 min) “for an intelligent, slow-burning portrait of a society and its courageous, yet necessarily indirect, diagnosis of that society. Challenging traditional modes of perception, it explores the relationship between industrial production and social development.” (Jury statement)
