Recently, Fujian learning platform of xuexi.cn launched the original English feature, The Story of Xiadang, produced by College of Foreign Languages, Fujian Normal University.
The film was scripted, directed and acted by teachers and students of CFL. Featuring General Secretary Xi Jinping's three visits to Xiadang Township, the film employs documentary techniques to highlight the vivid stories of Xi Jinping (then secretary of the CPC Ningde Prefectural Committee of Fujian province) visiting Xiadang Township to conduct research in July 1989. At the same time, the film focuses on the contrast between the past and the present, presenting to the audience the new poverty relief models of Xiadang Township and the present look of a moderately prosperous life, so that the world will get a better understanding about China through the stories of fighting against poverty in rural areas in China.
