"Morning Sun" is a compelling and exciting documentary film about the history of the Cultural Revolution in China that demonstrates the inseparable connection of political movements in the twentieth century to issues of spectacle, representation, and cinematic culture itself. It narrates the development of revolutionary thinking in China from the mid-1960s to mid-1970s and its link to visual narratives. The film does not just use these images as "illustrations." Instead, the filmmakers deftly demonstrate the importance and power of images in advancing the revolutions of the twentieth century.
