Crosscurrent Trailer

"This river is mine." Cheng Cheng Films has debuted the trailer for a Chinese drama titled Crosscurrent, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year. The poetic film is a fantasy romance set on the Yangtze River, and was actually filmed on the river itself. They wanted to "capture the traditional ink-brush painting look of the Yangtze". As artistic as it looks, there's also a greyness they've captured of the modern world. The stunning cinematography won a Silver Bear award in Berlin for cinematographer Ping Bin Lee's "outstanding artistic contribution". Crosscurrent stars Hao Qin, Zhilei Xin, and Kai Tan. Watch below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ two posters) for Yang Chao's Crosscurrent, direct from YouTube:
