Screening with Director Li Wei 李维 Q & A

As China took a leap forward economically, what happened to the rural population that was being left behind, physically and financially? Who was to educate the rural children? Li Wei’s The Enclave serves as an intimate and nuanced lens through which one can see this world of the left-behind, their loss, grief, failure, numbness, and above all, the unfairness of their world.

The Enclave was included in the Asian Vision Competition of Taiwan International Documentary Festival in 2016, and won the Independent Spirit Award of the Beijing Independent Film Festival in 2015.

Film Summary: Yibu SUGAN lost his father when he was young. He nearly died elsewhere before returning home to live with his mother. With the arrival of volunteer teachers, he is pleased to see the village children get the education they need. He also attends the classes occasionally. Electricity became available in the village in 2012. With TV, he has a new way to learn more about the outside world.
