CGTN published this video item, entitled “The power of films on China’s rural life” – below is their description.
Rural China is giving way to rapid modernization. But the fading of life outside China’s big cities may take a breather for now, thanks to rural revitalization. The changing face of China’s rural life is reflected in the Chinese film market. More and more films focusing on rural changes have hit the big screen. Director Li Ruijun is one of those who made movies on China’s remote countryside. His new movie, Return to Dust, was shot in a small village in northwestern China. The main actor is his uncle, a farmer who lives and works in the village. The film was once shortlisted for the main competition section of the Berlin International Film Festival. The film shows power and love in a hard rural life. CGTN’s Tian Wei talked to him in a cinema where his film is running.CGTN YouTube Channel
