CHRONICLE OF LONGWANG

Documentary 1h 32m 2007

Unusually prevalent religion vs. extreme secular belief; unrestrained power vs. powerless society; working hard in the fields and living thriftily, but never believing in the meaning of one’s own life. This is the basic reality of Dragon King Village, a common village in the west. The film has no main narrative. The image changes as the four seasons rotate. There is no great happiness nor tragedy. Everything happens, but without any result. Everything expends in vain. Strictly speaking, this film is only an edited visual archive of a village, an insignificant daily account of a common village in the west.
