Winter Vacation

Han jia

Directed by Li Hongqi
China, 2010


In a dismal small industrial town in winter, bored teenagers and disillusioned adults rage at each other and the emptiness of life in frost-bitten northern China. In the midst of absurd exchanges, heartaches run alongside with criticism of school education and the aftermath of national communism.
