Miles Apart

dir. Ling Lee

An intimate and observational story of a contemporary Chinese family, Miles Apart follows the journey of wedding photographer Laomao. He moved to the city 12 years ago and left his children behind in the countryside to afford their education. This film looks at how this distance creates a clash between three different generations and cultures.
