Deep in northwestern China, surrounded by cotton fields and desert, lies the Uyghur village that Isa calls home. When he is not at school or working on his parents‘ farmyard, he spends carefree days with his friends – until the outside world starts forcing him to say one goodbye after another. With Isa’s mother‘s illness placing an increasing burden on the family, his father considers putting her in a care home, far away from the village. Isa‘s best friend Kalbinur is getting bad grades, and is about to be sent to a faraway Chinese school. And then the little lamb, which the two children had been looking after with devotion ever since it was born, disappears. Captured in naturalistic imagery, winter closes in on Isa‘s world.

双手舀起基阿鲁斯达米留下的一泓净水,新晋导演王丽娜洒落在新疆故乡,让赤子之心洗涤尘世混浊心灵。两个小孩青梅竹马,温煦微笑是在青草地共同抚养小羊,棉花田收成时听父亲轻唱情歌;悲恸哀哭是失智失语母亲突然走失,汉语成绩低落被老师责骂。四季流转,母亲被送进养老院,好友进城读书;胡杨木落叶披霜千年不倒,人生却总要学会离别。以苍茫大地的灵秀,朴实情感的温润,获东京电影节亚洲未来最佳电影奖、柏林影展新世代单元评审团大奖、香港国际电影节新秀电影竞赛单元(华语)火鸟大奖。

Director 导演

WANG Lina was born in the Uighur region in Xinjiang in 1987 and studied at the Communication University of China. A First Farewell is her debut film and a poetic piece dedicated to her hometown.

After 6 months of field research and a year of documenting, she and her crew spent two years stationed in Shaya, Xinjiang shooting the film. The film is a perfect combination of reality, poetry and story.

王丽娜导演是新疆沙雅人,中国传媒大学硕士。电影《第一次的离别》是献给故乡的一首长诗。

在经过半年的田野考察与一年的纪录片跟踪拍摄,并组建故事片团队后再用两年驻地拍摄,完成了《第一次的离别》这部现实性、诗意性、故事性完美结合的作品。
