    Still from Chinese School

The Film

There are 350 million children enrolled in further education across China, but Chinese School takes as its subject one small town in rural Anhui, and focuses on the lives of a group of families, teachers, and children during the course of a single academic year.

They are schools like many thousands of others across this vast nation, but through the individual stories of hardship, joy, and success, an extraordinary portrait emerges of a nation, a town, and a group of children in the midst of enormous change.
