Myriad of Lights / Along the Sungari River

1947 NR

Director Fu Shen's heartbreaking Myriad of Lights follows the struggles of an impoverished peasant family in war-torn Shanghai, and Shan Jin's Along the Sungari River centers on a young woman forced to flee Manchuria during the Japanese invasion. Shen's film was banned by the Communist Party for its realistic depiction of the deplorable living conditions imposed upon China's destitute following World War II.
