Director Qingyi Lu brings her acclaimed documentary “Four Springs”, which had a budget of 1500 RMB but has a douban score of 8.9 with sixty thousand votes.

With a focus on Chinese art-house films,  the inaugural  CineCina Film Festival will take place from April 5th to 19th in 2019.  Twenty-two films, including a series of films by director Lou Ye ( Suzhou River, Blind Massage)  and recent favorites like Four Springs 四个春天 will be aired with many directors present for Q&A.

See the scheduled screenings here. I haven’t even heard of any of the films other than Four Springs and the Lou Ye ones, so I have no recommendations. Many of them sound super interesting, though.
