SINGING IN THE WILDERNESS
旷野歌声Directed by Chen Dongnan
In the mountains of Southern China, a small community of Christian-Miao people have kept their religion and traditions safe until the Chinese propaganda machine discovered their “hidden talents.” After sensationalizing their local religious choir and broadcasting them on national TV, their quiet village suddenly became a tourist attraction. Dongnan Chen masterfully captures the extraordinary and permanent transition of this village and its people.
