Hong he gu( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in Chinese and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the beginning of the century, a country Han girl is being sacrificed to a river god. Rescued first by her brother and then in a twist of fate by an old Tibetan woman, Zhen begins her new life taking the name of Snow Dawa, and slowly falls in love with Gesong, the Tibetan woman's son. The young couple later save two men buried in an avalanche. These two men have very different views about the future of Tibet. One finds the kindness, hospitality, and purity in the nature of the Tibetans overwhelming. The other is intent upon bringing civilization to Tibet by "liberating" the Tibetan people. "Red River Valley", shot against the epic scale of the beautiful Tibetan landscape, provokes thoughts about the similarities of different cultures on opposite sides of the Earth, and why liberation and civilization begin with massacre."--Container

Woman Demon Human is a shining example of the "New Chinese Cinema" woven with the Chinese "opera film" whose brilliant allegories reveal so much with extraordinary flair. No less could be expected from the masterful hand of the brilliant female director Huang Shuqin. Born into the world of her parents' Peking Opera Company, a young girl follows her dreams and becomes a professional actress. With her personal world marked by trauma, she submerges herself into her stage roles. Yet she dreams of more: she wants to play the major "male" roles. Will this struggle for modernity and equal rights come through? Or will she be forever trapped in the confinements of traditional culture, living with her own personal ghosts? --

Luo tuo Xiangzi = Rickshaw boy by She Lao( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in Chinese and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This long standing project was delayed by the restrictions on feature film production during the Cultural Revolution and is one of a number of film adaptations of 20th century literary classics which have been slowly emerging since 1977. While the fatalism of the novel is apparently toned down this remains an atmospheric study of the effects of oppressive economic and social conditions on individual lives in Beijing of the 1920's. It is about a young man's attempt to earn a living pulling a rented rickshaw with the aim of becoming independent by earning enough to buy his own rickshaw. He is trapped into an ill matched marriage with the daughter of the agency boss and strikes up a friendship with his neighbour, a young woman who has been sold into prostitution by her father
