The Next Life + A Second Child on Monday 11th November 2019

The Next Life follows a working-class couple lost their only child in the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake. When the earthquake hit, Zhu, the father, tried to rescue his beloved daughter from the rubble but failed, plunging the couple’s happy life into darkness and uncertainty. The sequel, a short entitled A Second Child records how the same couple struggle to recover from the painful past.

Curated by the Chinese Independent Film Network UK, Newcastle University and supported by UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Earth in Crisis showcases a series of Chinese eco-documentary films foregrounding the growing ecological emergency facing our planet. It will bring award-winning directors to independent cinemas across the UK to present and discuss their work.
