Hard Old Rock

Vecchia roccia
Directed by Shan ZuolongItalian title: Vecchia roccia
China / 2009 / 62'

A hard old rock, a hard old man. He is unyielding to people, society, history, system, fate, surroundings and even himself. This is an intimate and respectful documentary which portrayed a striking 83-year-old fellow-countryman. As a young man, Zheng was a bon vivant who would rather spend his time gambling and dancing than studying. That exuberant way of life comes to an end when he is charged with counterrevolutionary behaviour and sentenced to prison. Now, he lives on his own in Shuanglin Town.
