THE BLOOD OF YINGZHOU DISTRICT

Dir: Ruby Yang
China / United States / 2006 / 39mins

Little is known about Gao Jun, not even his age. Yet this young AIDS orphan reveals his ferocious resolve to live while his extended family weights up whether or not to keep him. This compelling film, directed by noted Hong Kong born filmmaker Ruby Yang and produced by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Thomas Lennon, tells the story of traditional Chinese obligations of family and village colliding with terror of infection, and how these forces play out in the lives of children in the remote villages of Anhui.
