Where The Peach Is In Bloom
There's no way out - your every move is being watched and to survive your loyalty must be to the system, not to your friends. This isn't an Orwellian nightmare, it's the Peach Reform School. Filming inside the school for a year, this intimate doc gets under the skin of China's extreme juvenile correctional establishments for the first time. From terrified 11-year-old Wenjun, to teenage secret lovers, Lei-gong and Chanjuan, and the rough but conflicted school instructor, Zhou Hai; intimate access to these characters reveals how everyone is a victim in a system that sets love and friendship against obedience and order.
Where the Peach is in Bloom is currently in post-production.
