Chinese film ‘Rumination’ honored at Vancouver festival
The Chinese film “Rumination” (“Fanchu”) was among two East Asian films honored with “special mentions” at the Vancouver International Film Festival Dragon and Tigers Award for Young Cinema on Thursday night in the Canadian city.
“Unbelievable,” said the 23-year-old director who was presented with his award in front of a packed theater before the screening of Feng Xiaogang’s “Aftershock”, the Chinese blockbuster about the 1976 Tangshan earthquake. “I made this film for the young audiences of Japan. I never thought that I would be standing here talking to you, receiving this award. I am very, very happy.”
