The Red Awn / Cai Shangjun

Song Hai, a man in his 50s, returns to his hometown to reclaim his house and is told that he is officially dead – according to the local bureaucratic ministry. During Song’s five-year absence, his wife has died and his son Yongtao crossed him off the city registry. The rest of the film follows Song’s sincere efforts to resuscitate his fatherly image in his son’s mind. For Yongtao, understanding his father is also a process of growing up. Sometimes, time resolves human relationships.
