Rooms with Mao's Images

Synopsis

This film was shot in Gulang, Gansu Province, where I made two other films. When I return to the footage I shot there, I realise that I have been to many peasants’ houses with MAO Zedong's picture on the walls. Although MAO's era has ended decades ago, he remains as a strong folk belief, a divinity in this atheistic country. This film is literally about the people living in those houses.
