Film school student Kun graduates into a real-world that moves too fast to care about his auteur aspirations and sound recording skills. Yearning for an escape away from Beijing’s grinding survival races, he sets off for a film shoot in Inner Mongolia’s lush grasslands, where amusing man-made spectacles and unforgettable lessons await him. With three Cannes official selections under his belt at the age of 30, writer-director Wei Shujun is an unstoppable force rising from the Chinese indie film scene. In the debut inspired by his real-life experience, he leisurely delivers sharp observations of the embarrassments surrounding film education and indie filmmaking in a money-oriented society with witty humor. Also released as Ye Ma Fen Zong. Official Selection, Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for Gold Hugo-New Directors Competition, Chicago International Film Festival, 2020. Nominated for Golden Athena-Best Picture, Athens Internationaol Film Festival, 2020. Nominated-Best Cinematography, Faro Island Film Festival, 2022. In Mandarin with English subtitles. Directed by Shujun Wei. China.
