TRREE LETTERS FROM CHINA

written & directed by: luc schaedler
co-director: markus schiesser
CH 2013, 80 mins, 16:9, documentary
language versions: english, german,
french & chinese

Based on three different places, the film portrays the infractions to which people living in modern day China are subjected due to rapid developments: in the deceptively idyllic Jiuxiancun in the rainy south; in the apocalyptic coal mining site of Minqin and Wusutu in the parched north; and in Chongqing, the megacity on the Yangtze River. The protagonists give their moving accounts of an unresolved past, an uncertain present and their tentative steps into the future.
