Roni Shao directs ‘Frontiers’.

 

The initial mission of FRONTIERS is to explore the underground scenes in China and to understand how underground artists push the “safety boundary” in a society where harmony is the dominant ideology, and where Chinese youth all become seemingly perfect performers on social media in the digital age. In this film, we use pure performance as our primary narrative tool to showcase the raw and unedited self-expressions below the surface.
