I’m not sure what this short film is about, but I quite like it. Therefore, I’m posting it. I also love the 1960s French song (France Gall’s “Ne dis pas aux copains”) featured in it.

Zhang Peng creates creepy and lush photomanipulations of doll-like little girls, each of which portrays a perverted, twisted innocence as the subjects are caught in the midst of acts of violence – still lifes with a quietly macabre quality. These images seem, to me, to make a statement about the role of innocence in contemporary Chinese culture, the odd midway that women occupy between child and object, and the shrine of youth, subverted and corrupted.
