SO LONG, MY SON 地久天长
Sun 15 May | 12:45 | Rialto De Pijp | Q&A with Director Wang Xiaoshuai after the film
Two families grow up together in the 1980s during the revolutionary reforms in China, but they part ways after the loss of a child in a tragic accident. In the midst of a rapidly changing country, families, friendships, love and fate all appear to be subject to change. Although the two families have grown apart after all these years, their search for the truth and urge to come to terms with the tragedy has always remained the same. Sometimes, however, it can take a lifetime to be ready to say goodbye.
