The Longwang Chronicles: a Year of Lifes in a Chinese Village 90 min.

Yifan Li, China, 2008, color, video
Synopsis

You would be surprised by the booming Christian communities in the countryside of China, where political authority often feels powerless. In a village in the mountain area, the land can barely support the miserable living conditions for a farmer, however Christianity grows its popularity here. This film follows several different Christian organizations and several clergymen and clergywomen, who richen the lives of the impoverished village with their sincere faiths and different personalities.
