Lina Wang, the director of A First Farewell, who is currently making another feature in Xinjiang, China, and she kindly sent us this video hoping to help the audience in the UK and Ireland to understand the film a bit more. In her own words, A First Farewell is a long poem which she wrote for her childhood and her hometown, Shaya of Taklamakan. It took her four years to make this film and all actors were locals and amateurs, as she regards film as a sort of recording facts, not shooting techniques wise, but a way of reconstructing life.
