Considered China's "only genuine feminist film", Woman Demon Human stages an unorthodox biopic of famed Beijing Opera star Pei Yanling whose career was noted for her portrayal of male roles, especially the male underworld god, Zhong Kui. Through Shuqin's unique female point of view, she creates a world that traverses fantasy, gender roles, subjectivity and psychological mystery.
