“With its quirky humour, its tragi-comic storyline and its repeated defiance of expectations, She, a Chinese is a profoundly human story with a bold scope.” - Eye For Film
Mi Lie has never travelled more than five miles from her home, a poverty-stricken village in rural China where everyone is just getting by. But with her eyes set on the big city and a dream of making it to the UK, she doesn't plan on sitting still for long.
Filmmaker Guo Xiaolu (How is Your Fish Today?, MIFF 2007) presents an allegory on China's place in the world and where it has travelled from.
Winner of the Golden Leopard at the 2009 Locarno International Film Festival.
