COMING AND GOING
Tianlin Xu | China, Deutschland 2015 | 89 Min. | OmeU

Das Streben nach Wohlstand ist die treibende Kraft hinter den Geschichten der zwei Geschwisterpaare aus dem chinesischen Hinterland. Die einen kehren ihrem Dorf den Rücken und versuchen ihr Glück in den Städten, w o sie schon bald die brutale Realität des Wirtschaftsbooms am eigenen Leib erleben. Die jungen Brüder im Nachbardorf hingegen sehnen sich innig nach der Rückkehr ihres Vaters, der als Wanderarbeiter für das Auskommen der Familie sorgt.

Biography

Tianlin Xu is a Chinese filmmaker based in Germany, with an academic background in German studies and Journalism. Before she found her passion for filmmaking, she worked as a coordinator for art and culture projects in Beijing, a position, which enabled her to be involved in the organization of a documentary film festival as well as the production of a feature film. These worthy experiences sparked her interest in exploring narrative documentary with a high level of a personal aesthetic style. Since 2009 she has produced several short documentaries and multimedia stories. Coming and Going is her feature-length directorial debut.
