Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tracks – Part 2: Remnants (2003) Bing Wang, Documentary


Part II, called “Remnants,” and is set in a shantytown whose living conditions mirror the dilapidation of the state-run factories seen in Part I. Evocative of feminine charms, it is the new name of an area once known as “Handmaiden’s Grave.” The prettied-up new name glosses over the area’s rundown squalor. Taken as the title for Part II, it is deeply ironic about newfound “progress” in Shenyang’s shift towards a privatized economy, no different perhaps from applying fresh makeup to a dead handmaiden to make her appear revived. The erotic connotations of “alluring facepowder” also calls to mind the preoccupation of jobless youth: picking up girls.
“Remnants” is the elegiac title for the neighborhood, which is slated to be demolished for commercial development.
In the English captions, it is called “Rainbow Street.” Part II opens with an upbeat lottery event there. “Rainbow” aptly describes the garishly colorful trash from lottery tickets discarded on the ground after the momentary prospect of a big windfall has passed.

Also Known As (AKA): À l’ouest des rails, Il distretto di Tiexi, Tetsu nishiku
