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:

A voyage in between a woman who tries to searching for the meaning of life and a man holding a book of poems on the longest river of Mainland China. Crosscurrent is directed by Chinese filmmaker Yang Chao, of the 2004 film Passages previously. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, and also played at the Taipei Film Festival and Chicago Film Festival. It won the "Best Cinematography" award at the Berlin Film Festival. This was actually filmed on the Yangtze River, with the crew living on a cargo boat for 60 days. Cheng Cheng Films will release Crosscurrent in limited US theaters starting October 28th this weekend.

Lost souls. As many in this world. This is how this looks like. Is this still appealing as an art?

By the way, there were once dolphins that lived exclusively in the Yangtze River, the baiji. However, they are now classified as functionally extinct. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bb3f38c91b15d1353348438cc3b59ad66aacd71f25d8822aa51a267d64b06066.jpg
