Directed by Yan Zhang
A tender homage, GRANDMA’S ALILANG is a hybrid documentary that profiles director Yan Zhang’s grandmother, an ethnic Chosun (Korean) minority in China, who talks about how she met and married her husband more than 50 years ago and the traditional customs she followed on the first night of the wedding. Mixing realistic and surrealist images and performances, the film converys the feelings of love from an old woman’s life experiences and memories.
