Her short film Dusk Till Dawn was officially selected for the Pingyao International Film Festival’s Pingyao’s Corner section. Xu is drawn to tell the stories of people around her through cinematic language because of their authenticity and natural conflicts, which deserve to be seen by more people. This is one of the major driving forces behind her decision to become a director.
