Restored by the Shanghai International Film Festival in partnership with L’immagine Ritrovata film laboratory, Stage Sisters opened this year’s Shanghai festival on the occasion of the film’s 50th anniversary. Made at the cusp of the Cultural Revolution, the sweeping melodrama chronicles the different destines of two opera singers against the backdrop of China’s struggle for liberation. Known and beloved as a director of “women’s films”, Stage Sisters is a prime example of Xie Jin’s sensitivity to female characters and it boasts stellar performances from lead actresses Xie Fang, Cao Yindi, and legendary Chinese star Shangguan Yunzhu.

Fusing elements of Hollywood musicals, Soviet Cinema aesthetics and Chinese opera traditions, Stage Sisters is an exuberant, politically astute and humanistic portrayal of lives caught in the clash of ideological and social change.
