"Girl From Hunan"
Directed by Xie Fei/U Lau
A portrait of a remote
village in turn-of-the-century China struggling to hang on to its feudal
traditions. A wedding brings a 12-year-old girl and a breast-fed,
two-year-old boy together. As the girl matures, she challenges outlandish
ideas of freedom and ends up with an illegitimate child. Her reality is
made increasingly complicated as her boy is prepared to marry a few years
later, according to tradition. Mandarin with English subtitles.
