The Rice Paddy (w/ Where the Water Settles)
The Dong people in southern China are renowned for their rice, so it’s apt that one of the first films in the Dong language is The Rice Paddy by Xiaoling Zhu. A Qui, a young Dong girl, dreams big of things outside her small village, and the rice paddies that fill the lives and bellies of those around her.
France, 2011, 82 minutes
