Let the bullets flyGood news for all Chinese movie lovers: at the Leids Filmfestival this year, there will be a track of Chinese films called ‘The Reel China‘.

The movie, directed by Feng Xiaogang, tells the story of a family separated by the great Tangshan earthquake of 1976. The film will have a short introduction by Anne Sytske Keijser.

The other films are Let the bullets fly, a Chinese bandit story from the 1920s, and Piano in a Factory, a story set in the 1990s about a divorced man building a piano for his daughter so she will live with him.
