Storyline

Gao Jun, the child featured in "The Blood of Yingzhou District," does not speak a word until the closing minutes of the film. Little is known about him, not even his age. Yet this young AIDS orphan reveals his ferocious resolve to live while his extended family weighs whether or not to keep him. The documentary 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. Framing the film is Gao Jun's search for a family to call his own. Written by Thomas Lennon

Reflections
27 February 2007 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Well, I am here in China and I see a preview of the documentary on YouTube and I think that I feel ashamed to ignore the miserable fate of that infected kid. What is all my education these years about? Only exams.repeated exams In college, artificial situations make it impossible for me even to try to understand others and every day is spent doing my own business totally oblivious of what others' joy and sorrow.This is too terrible!In fact, this night when i got the plots of this documentary, i still feel it is very far away from me .So unreal. Maybe the State media will not publish the award of that great courageous director but any way I feel some relief in finding that those kids are not left behind by others like me. God be with them.
