Some Manifestations of the South

Some Manifestations of the South is a story about one of the so called ‘small-town youngsters’ guys, who lives in south China and running an errand service: visiting and cleaning ancestors’ cemeteries of his clients on their behalf on festivals and anniversaries. He received a special assignment just after he decided to wind up this business.

Director Bio

WANG Zhiyi is a filmmaker who just got his master's degree of filmmaking from London Film School. Grew up in Changsha, one of the central cities of China's film and television industry, he studied film and television production at a local university before he attended LFS. After years of student life finally ended, he could not wait to return home immediately to show his talents but was suddenly disrupted by the global outbreak of COVID-19. Now, after he eventually returned to China and ended his medical quarantine, he has been busy preparing for his new short film when the entire country's film industry starts slowly recovering from a complete shutdown.
