Synopsis

"An encounter between me and the tragic suicide of four brothers and sisters. I take the risk to go into the village but get caught and held by the local authorities. Then after I’ve left, I wander in the mountains. Hanging out with the children in the mountains evokes my childhood memories. Fleeing like a coward, I return to Beijing and my family, and yet that lingering feeling keeps haunting me."

Director

RONG Guang Rong is a filmmaker and artist born in China and now based in Beijing. In 2008, he started to take part in art exhibitions in China and abroad. In 2010, Rong and Italian artist and sinologist Ambra Corinti founded Zajia lab, one of the earliest and most important independent creative spaces and artists-led organisations in Beijing. Rong’s projects are now mainly focused in making films for independent screening. His first feature film is currently in post-production.
