English Description
The creation of Yulu, a feature length film from China's most influential documentary film director Jia ZangKe and 6 of his directorial protégées, was a visible, pointed departure from the glossy, manufactured insincerity of the international Spirits category in China.
The pace of change in China is unique. It’s tangible. It’s visible. This film lays bare the aspirations, commitment and depth of a group of young Chinese people (businessmen, artists, entrepreneurs, musicians, etc.) who are committed to a new vision of progress in China.
They are raw, vivid and gritty portrayals of the achievements of a sample of China’s ‘new progressives’.
Their stories tell us that a truly modern progressive China is so much richer, multi-faceted and surprising than the single-minded pursuit of wealth.
The feature length film premiered at the 35th International Hong Kong Film Festival to a sold-out audience. Thirty second TV spots drove wider awareness of the project and directed viewers to an online site where the film was released in 12 segments.
In just 8 weeks the Yulu campaign reached 19 million views.
The debate that the brand has sparked and framed continues to ripple across China.
