Last Train Home (Movie Watch)

Working over several years in classic verité style, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades. Like so many of China’s rural poor, Changhua & Sugin Zhang left behind their two infant children for grueling factory jobs. Their daughter Qin—now a restless & rebellious teenager—both bitterly resents their absence & longs for her own freedom away from school, much to the utter devastation of her parents. Emotionally engaging & 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.
