Ghost Town (Fei Cheng)

Zhiziluo is a virtual ghost town tucked into a rugged corner of southwest China. Residents of this rural nowhere struggle to find spiritual and material comfort in a world that appears to have left them behind. The three-part documentary examines three different stories from the region, each telling a part of the story. First is the pastor of the local Christian church. Second, is a pair of star-crossed lovers torn apart by economic and cultural realities. Third, is a 12-year-old orphan who has learned to fend for himself after being abandoned by his family. Ghost Town was named one of the Top Ten Undistributed Films of 2009. In English and Mandarin with English subtitles. 170 minutes
