'Red Art' reflects the rise of the scenes about the posters during the Cultural Revolution in 1966 and how posters were used as a propaganda; and interviews former painters, Red Guard, today's researchers and collectors at home and abroad who talk about the meaning of the posters.


'Red Art' is the second documentary after the documentary makers finished the first one 'Painting for the Revolution: Peasants Painters in Hu County', which documents how folk art was transformed by the political campaigns, and records the artists' memory of this unusual period of history.


'Red Art' rhymes with 'Red Guard', which implies a metaphorical significance. As Mao's poems usually convey the impression of 'sunset as blood-red', the title of the film summarizes Mao's imagination of the revolution and the cost that people and art had to pay.

《紅色美術》採訪了當年的畫家、紅衛兵以及今天中國和英國的收藏者、研究者,力圖呈現文革宣傳畫的產生、流傳及影響。在片中講述個人故事的有:《毛主席去安源》作者劉春華、廣州畫家李醒韜、廣州老紅衛兵周繼能等……北京、廣州的美術館主持人、美術評論家、當年將中國宣傳畫帶去英國的記者、教授、研究者等,從不同角度講述了對文革美術的理解。


《紅色美術》是本片作者繼《為革命畫畫:戶縣農民畫》之後完成的第二部有關中國文革宣傳畫的紀錄片,豐富的圖像資料與文革時代的影像穿插在一起,為人們反思文革與視覺藝術的關係提供了新的思考。
