Private Project

Only one kid

Zhang Jianjun is a fisherman from Luoma Lake. Although he and his wife Hongxia already have a teenage son, Zhang Xiaohu, they still choose to take the risk and continue to have a second child. In order to avoid inspection, Hongxia pretended to be ill and did not show up for many days, but Hongxia's delivery date was approaching, so she reluctantly found a small clinic and moved to the delivery room it opened in the pigsty, but the village head's suspicions are closing in on them.

Director Statement

This film is based on my personal experience as a child.
I was born in a small village in northern Jiangsu province, China, in order to avoid the family planning induced abortion and fines have encountered overnight cross-provincial escape, sleeping pig pen, climbing walls, mud puddles and other incidents.
One afternoon more than 20 years later, as an adult, I happened to have a long chat with the head of the village family planning office and learned more about the poignant stories and human warmth of the people in that era.
Now that the one-child policy has gone from one child to three, times are changing so fast, I want to record something worth remembering.
