Two Stage Sisters 

Dir. XIE Jin 1964. China. Color. 107 min. 35mm. With English subtitles. Featuring XIE Fang, CAO Yindi.

One of the last films made before the Cultural Revolution, Two Stage Sisters follows the lives of two female opera performers, Chunhua (Xie Fang) and Yuehong (Cao Yindi), from 1935 to 1950 as they leave a small countryside folk opera troupe and join a theater company in Shanghai. Their relationship is put on trial as ideological differences develop over a period of turbulent political and social upheavals.
