Chronicle of Longwang: A Year in the Life of a Chinese Village
You would be surprised by the booming Christian communities in the countryside of China, where political authority often feels powerless. In a village in the montain area, the land can barely support the miserable living conditions for a farmer. However, Christianity grows in popularity here. This film follows several different Christian organizations and several clergymen and clergywomen, who richen the lives of the impoverished village with their sincere faiths and different personalities.
