HOW IS YOUR TIME WU?
DOC SHORT | 30 MIN | China
Directed by Tian'ai Zhang

This is a documentary about the bravery and compassion of a childhood under extreme circumstances. In the frigid mountains of northeastern Yunnan Province, China, the four Xia siblings have created a familial constellation amongst themselves, supplying one another with warmth and affection, sibling to sibling. Their parents are migrant workers, seldom home, and the two youngest children anticipate not so much their parents’ return but rather that of their older sister, who is away at school. But the oldest sister’s homecoming also means the end of her education. And, with the eldest brother preparing to embark on his own migrant worker journey, the Xias’ version of familial unity will be fractured yet.
