Poet on a Business Trip

诗人出差了 | Shi ren chu chai le

Directed by Ju Anqi
China, 2015


Shot more than 10 years ago and only now edited. A poet sets off on a ‘business trip’ through inhospitable Xinjiang. The physically exhausting trip provides an existential brothel visit, bumping on bad roads, and a glimpse of a disappearing world, accompanied by 16 melancholy poems.
