Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains

While social and economic developments rage on, four brothers seek new balances in their lives. Inspired by the changes in his hometown and classical Chinese painting, the young filmmaker Xiaogang Gu paints a confident tableau film on the swell of the Yangtze River and the flight of time.

“The sure hand with which Xiaogang Gu ties all his threads, bridges from one figurative art to another.” – Florence Maillard, Cahiers du Cinéma

“The way Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains places each individual life within the evolution of a family, a society and a landscape, while attuning it to both the rhythm of the seasons and the turns of history, touches the very essence of cinema.” – Marcos Uzal, Libération
