This Saturday night Vanishing Spring Light screens at the ONF at 8:00pm. The latest film by Concordia University graduate Xun Yu, this film is not to be missed!
Vanishing Spring Light is the first installment of Tales of West Street, an ongoing four-part documentary series examining the “ancient urban community” of West Street (Dujiangyan, China), a community whose traditions have been challenged by the unstoppable march of modernization. Grandma Jiang is one of the city’s oldest inhabitants, and the film follows her through the last two years of her life, living on a street pegged for redevelopment.
Xun Yu was born and raised in mainland China and studied Film Production in the United Kingdom. He completed his master’s degree at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec and has worked as a cinematographer in Canada as well as internationally. The Vanishing Spring Light is his directorial debut and has received the Best New Talent award from the RIDM in 2011, as well as recognition at the 2011 edition of the Busan International Film Festival.
