Gui Daò - On the Way: Round Trip to Beijing

Top of page

Life on a Chinese passenger train travelling from Wuchang (in Hubei province) to Beijing is compressed into a series of tableaux. The enormous differences between the Chinese and Western cultures unfold as the film follows a railway worker, Wang Shaoying, from her distinctively Chinese commitment to work to her family life, where the small hopes and dreams of a people are expressed.
