Synopsis

Fed up with his final year at film school, skilled sound recordist Kun is searching for something more. He coasts through class, works dead-end jobs, and is constantly at odds with his girlfriend. With a newly minted drivers’ license, an old second-hand Jeep, and his best friend in tow, Kun takes up with a student production and embarks on a journey of self-discovery across China’s lush, varied landscape. Featuring winning performances and directed with a wry emotional clarity, Striding into the Wind is a keenly observed meditation on movies, modern China, and the meandering restlessness of youth.
