Summary
This richly photographed film captures the lifestyle of the Miao who live deep in the mountains of southern China. The Miao preserve the traditions of the past, unaffected by the changes of modern China.The Miao s courtship rituals are particularly interesting, because of the importance placed on love songs. We watch the young men and women woo one another with their soulful songs. Each year there is a regional festival called Pa-po-jeh where the young go in search of marriage partners from another village. The film focuses on a seventeen-year-old girl who attends the festival, and her family's every day life within their village. This is a rare opportunity to see life in a remote area of China
