Chinese Visual Festival Four Springs
Sun 20 October 2019
Four Springs is a documentary that presents a family’s daily life in the remote town in southern Guizhou. From a subjective angle, the camera introduces the flow of life out of the screen: the quotidian toils, singing, excursions in nature, visits among friends and extended families, funerals, reunions, and separation. Made on a tiny budget, the debut feature-length film from director Lu Qingyi, who had no prior training in filmmaking before he started to record his own family, became a surprise box office hit in China.
