Han Han directs new movie “Continent”

704_1357045_130702Author and now director Han Han’s new movie, Continent 后会无期 (”We Won’t Meet Again”) will be hitting theaters on July 24. This is another coming-of-age story that Han Han is adapting from one of his own works, featuring Feng Shaofeng, Wang Luodan, Chen Bolin, Joe Chen, Wallace Chung, and Yuan Quan in its central cast (not bad!) They play a set of childhood friends, who have all grown up together on the east side and now set off for a somewhat reckless journey. Han Han recently released the theme song on Weibo, titled “Song of Dongji Island.” I’ve posted the video below, if you want a sneak peek at some scenes from the film, but be warned – it sounds more like the Marseillaise than a theme song for a movie! (The Dongji islands on the very easternmost border of mainland China).
