The Chinese state's shabby treatment of its independent artists comes into sharp focus in Zheng Kuo's epic documentation of the enforced evictions from three "artist colonies" in East Beijing during the freezing winter of 2010/11. Featuring chinese artist Ai Weiwei The Cold Winter is a spirited contribution to the fight for grass-roots democracy in China.
