“A completely okay wife, but a bad mother.” That’s how the protagonist Beibei describes herself. This Woman is a groundbreaking documentary that portrays contemporary life in China in a completely new way.

Beibei wants to be free. She wants to live her life without limitations and wishes the same for her daughter. By independently moving from city to city, investing in real estate, and having various lovers, she defies the expectations of Chinese society about how a woman should lead her life. With stunningly beautiful cinematography, the film explores the question of the dual nature of norms – can gender roles also be liberating? Alan Zhang’s debut film provides an intimate insight into a woman’s life in a changing China.
