SYNOPSIS

A story of four brothers, told across four seasons, with each facing crucial changes in their lives at the same time as their ageing mother battles with dementia. Their dilemmas, decisions and destinies parallel the drastic societal change that is happening in their city. This parallelism is shot with acute scrutiny that resembles ancient Chinese paintings.

Taking its title from a famous 14th century Chinese scroll painting, director Gu Xiaogang’s debut feature film depicts ordinary lives on a panoramic scale. Selected as the closing film for this year’s Cannes Critics’ Week, Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains interweaves the lives of multiple characters, each developed in detail with masterful direction reminiscent of Edward Yang.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Gu Xiaogang studied costume design and marketing before making a switch to filmmaking, first with documentary, then to fiction. Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains is the first of his intended Scroll Painting Trilogy: A Thousand Miles of the Eastern Yangtze. Gu took home the Best Director award at the FIRST International Film Festival Xining for the film.
