The film

During the Cultural Revolution, Wang Han, an eleven-year-old boy living in the Chinese province of Ghizou, is proud to be the leader of a group gymnastics class, which takes place every morning in the schoolyard. One day, however, Wang Han crosses the path of a murderer on the run in a forest. That’s when he realises that the grown-up world isn’t as simple and organised as he had thought.

Wang Xiaoshuai

 

Wang Xiaoshuai, born in Shanghai in 1966, graduated from the Beijing Film Academy. Although his first film, The Days (1993), was awarded 1994 the main prize at the Thessaloniki Film Festival, it was blacklisted by the Chinese authorities, resulting in a strange situation between censorship and success at international festivals: Festival de Cannes (1998, 2003, 2005, 2010), Berlinale (Silver Bear for Beijing Bicycle, 2001) and Rotterdam (1995).
