About the Film:

Part of 吴天明 Wu Tianming Tribute.

Directed by Zhang Yimou. 1987. China. 95 min. Mandarin with English subtitles.
With the guidance of producer Wu Tianming, Red Sorghum catapulted the careers of director Zhang Yimou and first-time actress Gong Li into the international spotlight. Set during the Second Sino-Japanese War, Red Sorghum follows a young woman who takes charge of a failing distillery after the death of her much older husband. She is able to turn the distillery around and maintain her freedom despite the interference of the men around her as the war reaches the village.
