A 63 minutes film produced by CCTV. It is only for education and non-commercial purpose. With thanks to Documentary Research Committee, of the Chinese Broadcasting and Television Academy.
This filmed 5 years' record of a small village community, namely Lijiashan (Li's Mountains) of Qikou, Shanxi Province, might serve as an illustration for a profoundly changing rural China. A town in the valley of the Yellow River, Qikou lies culturally in the heartland of the vast yellowish land. It used to be the hinge of transportation and still boasts a legacy of architecture created hundred years ago in the Ming or Qing dynasties. You naturally sense a perplexity of time, particularly on market days when you walk up and down the town in the fusion of the ancient style of the weatherbeaten buildings with a modern variety of commodities hawked by peddlers.
