The camera swivels around itself and through new Shanghai, passing from the suburbs into the city and back. swivel is an impossible, obsessive and whimsical portrait of Shanghai created by Oliver Husain's incessant panning camera. Digitally stitching together views of the city's interior and exterior realities, swivel is a far cry from cinéma-vérité, and yet, it shows us more of Shanghai in 15 minutes than do most feature-lengths portrayals. - Andrea Picard
