RIPPLES OF LIFE 永安镇故事集

A crew comes to a small town in southern China for the pre-production of a film called “Ripples of Life.” Initially, the film is based on the idea that “in this town, life is mundane and nothing really happens,” but beyond the script, a series of surprising stories do happen, entwining the lives of local residents with those of the cast and crew.  Shujun Wei’s second feature is a humorous yet contemplative meta-reflection on filmmaking and small town life in contemporary China, affirming him as a new voice in Chinese cinema to be reckoned with.
