"Rhapsody of Spring"
Directed by Teng Wenji
The career of one of China's most revered composers is
dramatized in this beautifully constructed, award-winning film. Called Zhao
Liming in the film, the character is a thinly veiled portrait of composer
Shi Guangnan, who dedicated his life to the preservation of China's musical
heritage from the days following the Cultural Revolution up into the modern
era. Mandarin with English subtitles. 120 minutes.
