the rice paddy

#
Director: Xiaoling Zhu.
The movie was filmed over several seasons with the Dong people, farmers from generation to generation. I met the 12-year-old girl who plays A Qiu, the main character in the movie, in an isolated village with no road and very little electricity. I was struck by how she loved to study. She was already a “little intellectual”, and the first in her family to have learned to read and write. I decided to make the movie from her point of view. In the movie, she wants to become a writer because she loves legends, she loves to tell the stories she invents. Perhaps she feels the urgent need to record her culture and language, an unwritten language that could disappear. The movie is close to the “neo-realist” tradition. It is purely fictitious, inspired by true facts and characters. It shows the reality of those families in which the parents go to work in far-off cities, and the grandparents raise the children, in addition to working in the rice paddies. I am a native of this region and wanted to depict how, in day-to-day life, tradition and modern society sometimes meet, and sometimes don’t.

GGFF aims to spotlight those who are working to preserve our planet through entertainment and help inspire other filmmakers to adopt green practices, build greater awareness of social and environmental issues, and raise money for the Minorities in Broadcasting Training Program (MIBTP) (www.theBroadcaster.com), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1992 to provide training opportunities to college graduates in TV/radio news reporting, news management and film/TV production.
 Eligible films can be any genre, but must be between 10 and 120 minutes in length and have been completed between 2008 and 2010. Films may be submitted online at www.goinggreenfilmfestival.com. The standard deadline is November 30th, 2009, with a submission fee of $55 and the final deadline is January 15, 2010, with a submission fee $65. Each submission fee includes a $20 donation towards Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). For every REC purchased, one megawatt-hour of renewable electricity is delivered to power grids.
