This chapter examines Zhang Ming's film Wushan yunyu (In Expectation, literally Rain Clouds over Wu Mountain). It argues that cinematic representation can contribute to our understanding of the complex effects of massive ecological disruption — the building of the Three Gorges Dam — on landscape, communities, and the individual psyche. It also argues that Wushun yunyu is doubly radical, in its uncompromising attempt to explore repressed and disavowed sexual conflicts in contemporary Chinese society, and in linking disruptions in human desire and sexuality to the destruction of the environment and communities.

Keywords:   Zhang Ming, Wushan yunyu, In Expectation, ecological disruption, sexuality
