Wo hai you hua yao shuo

When Night Falls
Ying Liang
Südkorea, China 2012

In 2008 a young man named Yang Jia killed six policemen. He was sentenced to death by the government, who made the decision without fully abiding by the legal procedures – the lawyer for Yang was carefully assigned, media report was controlled and the court proceedings were not open. Yang’s mother was even confined to a mental hospital because the authorities tried to stop her from giving testimony at court. In this series of real events, the one who stands out most is Yang Jia’s mother; her charm, courage and perseverance struck me a lot. With this short film, I pay salute to her, in the hope of doing justice to Yang Jia and the times we are living in. (Ying Liang)
