Storyline

Yugong Yishan refers to an ancient Chinese fable of an old man coined a fool for attempting to move the mountains that blocked the path in front of his house. He determinedly digs a small amount every day and with perseverance eventually manages to move these mountains. Yugong Yishan is also one of the three stories found in the Little Red Book, which Chairman Mao required everyone to memorize during the Cultural Revolution, to unite people in order to fight against the mountains he identified as imperialism and feudalism. Today, Yugong Yishan is the name of a small, non-descript bar, owned by a Chinese musician Gouzi, located in the heart of Beijing, which has already been marked for demolition to make way for more commercial ventures. Gouzi's vision is to create a thriving independent music scene in Beijing. The documentary, Yugong Yishan, explores the spirit of The Old Fool through three generations. Written by cinemanila
