Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains

by Gu Xiaogang Special Screenings

The four sons of the Yu family are living in a small town on the Chinese river Fuchun. The oldest is running a restaurant, the second lives on a fishing boat, the third is a single father and the youngest is considered useless in the eyes of his brothers. When their mother collapses on her 70th birthday, four seasons of change, anger and happiness follow. Like a Chinese landscape painting, DWELLING IN THE FUCHUN MOUNTAINS masterfully, elegantly and poetically flows through the complex life of a family that feels both its inner transformation and that of Chinese society. Self-taught filmmaker Gu Xiaogang’s debut enchants with grandiose image compositions and a sense of rhythm reminiscent of such Taiwanese masters as Tsai Ming-liang or Edward Young.
