YesAsia Editorial Description

Directed by Li Xiaofeng and Jia Kai, the documentary The Shoeshiner's Journey spends seven years following Old Liu, a Don Quixote-like idealist who drives around China in a battered van adorned in red flags and blasting revolutionary songs of the sixties. Originally a civil servant in Tibet, Old Liu left his home and family over a decade ago, and hit the road to promote his pipe dream of establishing an international communist college. Through following Old Liu's journey, the documentary returns to the history and trauma of the past and reveals the different faces of contemporary China.

Product Information

導演:黎小鋒LI Xiaofeng, 賈愷JIA Kai

"一個唐吉軻德式的中國人,開著一輛插著紅旗、放著紅歌的“戰車”,漫遊全國,夢想回到過去,建立一所烏托邦式的大學。

在中國的喧囂都市和偏遠鄉村,如果哪天一輛插著紅旗、貼滿標語的破車停在您的面前,並以高分貝播放著紅色歌曲,您可別以為回到了上世紀六十年代——這是“職業雷鋒”老劉來了!

老劉原本是西藏的一位公務員,十幾年來,他拋家棄子,開著一輛紅旗飄揚的破車漫遊全國,一路宣傳雷鋒精神,苦心孤詣地要創建共產國際大學。

本片從2007年開始製作,前後歷時8年。追隨老劉的旅程,我們的鏡頭不僅伸向了當下中國的神奇現實,同時也不斷重返他曾經置身的歷史境遇,以及無法直面的精神創傷。在某種程度上,他的過去和現在,這個國家的過去和現在,隨著老劉的車輪滾滾向前,在不斷交叉和展現。

這是一部由歷史和現實交織的,有關人的命運的悲喜劇。
