I met the heroine Huang Chunyan in 2017, when she was 35 years old and in high spirits, preparing to climb Mount Everest, the roof of the world, with the aura of "the first woman in Guizhou to climb mountains". I had the honor to attend her banquet before the climb and witnessed her miracle through her circle of friends and media reports afterwards.
After her descent, we maintained our friendship in the circle of friends until the second half of 2020, when she published a book called "My Everest", in which she recorded in the form of a diary her experiences during the climbing of Everest, and I was very moved after reading it. It so happened that Huang Chunyan was coming to Shenzhen for a book signing, so I seized the opportunity to help. So in those days, our relationship warmed up rapidly, and I got to know another side of her after her summit and praise after many knee-to-knee talks with her. In particular, I learned that after the outbreak of the new epidemic, she closed her outdoor company in Beijing for financial and family reasons and returned to her home in a remote mountain village in Guizhou to live in seclusion.
It was her "bold" decision, and what she had given, gained and created for it, that gave me the idea to make a documentary about her. I saw that in her life in the countryside, she was not only healing the wounds of her past, but also contemplating the meaning of life in the present, and building up new strength for the challenges ahead. As Huang Chunyan herself said, she always believed she could climb Mount Everest, but before that she did not really understand why she wanted to climb Everest. And this seemingly uneventful period may seem like a retreat, but it is actually a growth - she learned how to better reconcile with herself and connect with the world.
From another perspective, Huang Chunyan's farming in the fields is also climbing another "Everest". Like mountain climbing, she is fighting pressure and thirsting for conquest, but she is also seeking freedom and peace, and at the same time is deeply blessed by the great love of nature. I believe that such stories and experiences are unique and capable of evoking empathy. It is the pinnacle of our personal career in reality, and also the practice of transcending ourselves in the spiritual world. I hope this film can convey Huang Chunyan's power and thinking to everyone.
