Kunstforum | 20.09.2017 | 7.30 p.m.

The silent film drama Shen Nü - The Goddess (1934) is today one of the most important classics of Chinese cinema. The Chinese actress Ruan Lingyu plays a lonely, young woman who is pursuing prostitution in Shanghai to care for herself and her baby. Tyrannized by her procurer – called “The Boss”, all attempts to escape fail. Years later, the desperate mother finally managed to secretly put a little money on the side to provide her son a higher school education. But “The Boss” discovers the money.
Chinese filmmakers chose the silent movie drama nr. 29 of the 100 most important chinese films.
