Kaige’s debut film introduced the world to two of China’s most celebrated Fifth Generation filmmakers. The stunning cinematography was in the hands of Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, House of Flying Daggers, Hero) and the film won the Silver Leopard Award at the Locarno International Film Festival. A Red Army soldier visits a northern rural village to collect folk songs to be adapted into propaganda. While staying with a family, the soldier’s idealistic political views begin to inspire the family’s daughter, who is betrothed to an older man. Time Out considered Yellow Earth “the first ‘modern’ film to emerge from China, and one of the most thrilling debut features of the ’80s.” In Mandarin with English subtitles.
