A Story of An Old Castle

| China | 1995 | 45'

In a canyon of Liangshan Nationality Autonomous Region, there is an old castle whose declining walls have witnessed, like an old person, the changes of history. It keeps together the 30 households of the Han and the Yi people. The hostile nature and the everyday problems of life require collaboration and solidarity among the inhabitants. Generation after generation have been farming herding and living here. What are these people’s ambitions and dreams like? This film wants to spy out the forgotten corners of life and tell a common yet thrilling story. RO: In Regiunea Autonoma Liangshan se înalta, într-un canion un vechi castel. Zidurile sale surpate au fost martore ale schimbarilor istorice de aici, aidoma unui om batrân. Acum, ele adapostesc 30 gospodarii ale unor familii din nationalitatile Han si Yi. Natura ostila si problemele de fiecare zi îi obliga pe locuitori la colaborare si solidaritate. Generatii dupa generatii, ei au trait aici si si-au crescut turmele. Care le sunt visele si nazuintele? Filmul doreste sa spioneze colturile cele mai ascunse ale vietii acestor oameni si sa spuna o poveste obisnuita, dar tulburatoare.
