Chinese director Hao Jie delights with his lively musical comedy about a young man's romantic obsession spanning several decades. A larkish tribute to the er ren tai form of bawdy folk singing practiced for centuries in the Northwestern mountainous region of China, The Love Songs of Tiedan is shot in a village in this region and acted mostly by native nonprofessionals.
Presented as part of Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2013. Post-screening conversation with director Hao Ji, actor Feng Si, actresses Ge Xia and Yelan Jiang and producer Xiaomei Xing.
