A First Farewell

Drama 1h 30m 2018

AroView: Set against a magnificent landscape in the Xinjiang province of China (aka Chinese Kurdistan), this is a tender and fascinating insight into the lives of two Turkic Uygher families who face changes imposed by their impoverished agricultural lifestyles.

A humanistic jewel in the mold of THE EAGLE HUNTRESS and CAVE OF THE YELLOW BEAR, this presents universal issues of child-rearing, illness, growing old, marital discord, rural-urban economic tensions, and perhaps most of all, education.

“Bolstered by lush imagery and, perhaps more importantly, immensely naturalistic performances from its non-professional child actors, the film conjures up a quietly heartbreaking drama that works on multiple levels.” ~The Hollywood Reporter
