A River Runs, Turns, Erases, Replaces

USA – Berlin Forum 2021- Caligari Prize, Paris Cinema du Reel competition, IDFA Paradocs, Milan Filmmaker Award

Documentary by Shengze Zhu


A portrait of urban spaces along the Yangtze River in the city of Wuhan. An engaging communal stage on which people perform in various ways: some dancing, singing, swimming; some shoveling, welding, and hammering. An evolving landscape that is continuously sculpted by nature and dramatically altered by roaring machines and rising infrastructure. Where desires are planted. Where memories are buried. The lost place.
