Synopsis

YELLOW SHEEP RIVER is a film about the beauty in everyday life told through a poetry of images. Award-winning director LIU Soung's film is an exploration of life in traditional Chinese agricultural society. He sets aside social problems, such as poverty, and focuses purely on the imagery that is present in simple acts. The entire film is without dialogue. Everyday life is revealed through the director's omnipresent lens. At the same time, we are fully immersed in the land, the changing of the four seasons and the most basic conditions of human life. Through clever editing and simple rhythms reveal the joyous and fulfilling peace that is found in daily activities. If you have forgotten what it means to be alive, YELLOW SHEEP RIVER will remind you.


本片由十九幕農村生活片段所組成,再由一位失明的走唱樂師,將這些生活的片段吟唱串連而成。捨棄旁白、字幕,以及傳統的敘事結構,沒有主角與配角,全片由農民的生活細節堆砌而成。

金鐘獎導演劉嵩與拍攝團隊深入一個位於中國大西北偏遠角落的小農村-黃土高原上的黃羊川,傾聽與觀看那裡樸實的生活,看見生活細節中所展現溫韌的生命力。晨昏與季節的光影變化、影像如詩般的流動、從風沙中雕刻細緻情感、從平凡中實踐生活美學。一部關於自然與人文的高質感紀錄片,一趟愛與關懷的旅程。
