My Memories of Old Beijing

Cheng nan jiu shi

Directed by Wu Yigong
China, 1983
Drama

Synopsis

Seen through the gaze of a curious 11-year-old girl, the film is director Wu Yigong’s homage to a China 60 years gone. Based on writer Lin Haiyin’s childhood as a young girl in 1920s Beijing, it looks into China’s irretrievable past now only accessible through fractured and melancholic memory.
