Trivia

The idea for the film came after Co-Director Jordan Horowitz read a small article about Chen Si in the New York Times. Since he knew nothing about filming in China, he asked long time collaborator, Frank Ferendo to join him and Co-Direct the film. See more »

A 67-min documentary about Chen Si, a volunteer trying to prevent people from committing suicide by jumping from the Yangtze River Bridge in Nanjing. This bridge is one of the locations with the highest suicide rates in the world (more than 2000 suicides from 1968 to 2006 according to Wikipedia). Chen Si has been doing that for years, riding his motorbike on the bridge, looking for people who are about to commit suicide and helping them by talking to them, offering them food, shelter, work, money or an advice.

This is a very "raw" documentary. No fancy editing and no glamour. The film shows the poverty of the region and the stress people are having.
