Every spring, China’s cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year’s holiday. This mass exodus is the world’s largest human migration-an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Working over several years in classic verité style Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan (with the producers of the award-winning hit documentary Up the Yangtze) travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades. Like so many of China’s rural poor, Changhua and Sugin Zhang left behind their two infant children for grueling factory jobs. Their daughter Qin-now a restless and rebellious teenager-both bitterly resents their absence and longs for her own freedom away from school, much to the utter devastation of her parents. Emotionally engaging and starkly beautiful, Last Train Home’s intimate observation of one fractured family sheds light on the human cost of China’s ascendance as an economic superpower.

春运纪录片《归途列车》简介

每到冬去春来时候,中国的铁路就陷入集体的大混乱,数以千万在异乡的农民工就像候鸟一样,开始了他们回家的旅程。对大多数为生活奔波劳碌的人来说,这是每年唯一的一次狂欢,唯一的一次全身心放松与休息;也是他们坚守着的最后的情感底线——赶上最后一班列车,回家过年。这也是一个在传统和发展中挣扎着前进的现代中国特有的风景——世界最大的人口迁徙。

居住在加拿大的华人导演范立欣历经三年,用镜头纪录了来自四川的一对农民工夫妇外出打工的经历,展现出中国蓬勃发展的经济背后普通小人物的辛酸和眼泪。

16年前,张昌华和陈素琴夫妇俩跟随打工潮,离乡背井去往广州打工。对于他们而言,唯一的希望与安慰就是能够用辛苦赚来的微薄收入抚育他们留在家乡的一双子女,使孩子们能读书,有朝一日离开农村去城市生活。然而,由于他们常年在外打工,无暇顾家,日渐成年的女儿张琴以激烈的叛逆行为对抗父母,无情地宣判了父母梦想的破灭。张琴选择了退学离家,成为新一代的外出打工妹,从广州的服装厂到深圳的夜店,女儿的一次次选择刺痛了父母的心。
