Summary
"[Provides] a rare look at the avant-garde art world of modern Beijing. A young performance artist decides to make his own suicide his last work of art. On the longest day of the year, he plans to melt a huge block of ice with his own body heat and [die] of hypothermia. He calls this act of defiance an "ice burial." Frozen is based on a true story according to the filmmaker, who must hide behind the pseudonym Wu Ming, or "No Name"--Container
