(born August 1, 1968) is a sixth generation Chinese film director. A graduate of the class of 1991 of the Beijing Film Academy, Guan became the youngest director in the Beijing Film Studio. In the 1990s, Guan directed a handful of films making a name as an important voice of the sixth generation, most notably with his debut, 1994's Dirt
. A portrayal of Beijing's rock music scene, Dirt
was filmed on a shoestring budget and was funded primarily by lead actress, Kong Lin. Dirt
is often compared with another major sixth generation film about the Beijing rock scene, Zhang Yuan's Beijing Bastards
. Unlike that film, Guan Hu paid nearly US$2000 for state studio affiliation, allowing the film to be distributed in China and screened abroad with approval from state regulators.
