Vancouver International Film Festival presents Chinese filmmaker Feng Xiaogang, “Youth”, now playing until January 3rd at VIFF Vancity Theatre.

Beginning in the 1970s, “Youth” chronicles the joys and travails of a provincial military-arts troupe, soldiers in the People's Liberation Army whose duty it is to promote culture, revolutionary values, music, and dance. Feng has crafted a sweeping melodrama out of contemporary history.

"A paean to idealism and endurance, yet the word 'heart-breaking' comes to mind scene after scene." -Maggie Lee, Variety
