Haolun’s Nostalgia

I met Shu Haolun ??? a few years ago with a group of other filmmakers in Jakarta. He showed us his film. It begins with a shot of a group of oldies playing majong in an old house in Shanghai then there is a slow pan to a young man sleeping on the sofa, spectacles askew in deep sleep amidst the din. The shot is held for a long time then the titles come up An Afternoon at Grandmas. That was it. It was literally Haoluns afternoon at Grandmas. We burst out laughing. This year, that same house and those on that street are going to be torn down so he made another documentary about that house. The film is called Nostalgia????and it premiered in Shanghai earlier this year. Good luck Haolun! View trailer here
