The Faith in Ailao Mountain documentary is a visual recording of the true story of the writer and producer Zhang Ci May May as she travels back to Yunnan, China to visit her sick mother, very moving.
May May explores relationships with nature, a severely ill mother, god, and literature. Previously taboo subjects, China’s one child policy, euthanasia and the right to die, religious worship and spirituality, the synthesis of eastern and western cultures are shockingly documented, guided by the universal search for truth and artistic devotion to authentic voice.
