Huangliang Dream

The short film tells the story of Shuangyin growing up with his grandfather who loved singing and listening to the opera, and his grandfather often taught him the singing style and figure of traditional Chinese opera. After growing up, Shuangyin became a part of a famous opera team in the eight rural areas, often rushing several performances a day. However, his grandfather left Shuangyin forever. Later, under the impact of the internet, the number of people listening to traditional Chinese opera decreased, and the venue for Shuangyin gradually disappeared. But Shuangyin still adheres to his dream and promotes opera in the village. As a result, the younger brother who has achieved little success in entrepreneurship has a bias and conflicts with his brother Shuangyin, who insists on working in traditional Chinese opera but has little income. Shuangyin began to participate in various competitions, but did not advance or win any awards. In the end, he fell apart and walked into his "dream"

Director Statement

Speaking of the original intention of shooting this film, director Xu Fangqiang's grandfather loves to listen to and sing Beijing dramas, but now there is no stage in the street as before, and grandpa no longer sings and plays erhu. Few people pay attention to Beijing dramas, and few people will go to Beijing dramas specifically. Therefore, Xu Fangqiang chose to create and shoot micro-movies in his hometown in the form of public welfare, hoping to arouse people's attention to Peking Opera through a film and introduce China's traditional art to the whole world.
