Winner of the Grand Prize of “Chinese Documentary Award” at the 10th Taiwan International Documentary Festival, the film records Zhang’s (a former teacher at the Beijing Film Academy) three-year reporting in Hunan on the impact that a huge highway project had on rural life. The book version of this film was published in Chinese in November 2015 but was pulled off shelves and banned on the mainland in 2016 for “unclear reasons.” The film was available for the US market only this October.
