Shanghai Normal University
Follow Libao Wang, the village’s last singing fisherman. Libao tells us his story including his family’s financial problems and his disapproval of modern fishing techniques. Craft turned art, his fishing methods are seen as outdated and inefficient, but his singing skills have turned him into his village’s only tourist attraction. The film takes us into one of China’s forgotten villages and makes us savour the simplicity of fishing and its history.
