An Elephant Sitting Still is a 2018 Chinese film written, directed and edited by Hu Bo (also known by his pen name Hu Qian). The first and last film of the novelist-turned-director Hu who committed suicide soon after finishing his film on 12 October 2017 at the age of 29, it is based on a story with the same title from his 2017 novel Huge Crack. It made its world premiere in the Forum section of the 68th Berlin International Film Festival. An Elephant Sitting Still was released in United Kingdom on December 14th.
Hu, a celebrated novelist and student of Hungarian auteur Béla Tarr wrote, directed and edited the film, his debut feature. Tragically, the 29 year-old also killed himself shortly after the project was completed. At times, it feels as though we’re watching something we’re not supposed to be seeing, such is the detail of the emotional degradation on show; in this sense, it’s impossible not to read it as something of a nihilistic suicide note. Still, the care with which Hu depicts his characters suggests otherwise. Though he often uses long takes in the style of his mentor Tarr, this doesn’t feel like slow cinema. The camera is mesmerising and frequently in motion, Steadicam trailing and circling the characters closely, with them until the film’s bittersweet end.
