Jia Zhang-ke is considered a leading figure of the "Sixth Generation" of Chinese directors. He has received critical praise and has been recognized internationally, notably winning the Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion for Still Life in 2006. His films treat themes of alienated youth, contemporary Chinese history and globalization, and are characterized by the usage of a long-take, colorful digital video and a minimalist style.
Black Breakfast was shot in 2008 in China, as part of the collective film project Stories on Human Rights, inspired by the articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and focusing in particular on the theme of environment.
