Ning Ying China, 2002

EdieEmm's rating of the film Railroad of Hope

Intimate and riveting account of some of the many people making up China's growing migrant 'peasant-worker' phenomenon. Visually accomplished, each shot a compelling still in its own right, with notably interesting sound editing. I enjoyed this so much more than her fictional films. Really nicely done.
