北方一片苍茫 | The Widowed Witch
Cai Chengjie | 113 min
After losing her house and husband, a rural woman leads a stranded life with her 10-year-old brother-in-law in a modified “recreational vehicle”.
To find a warm place to survive the cold winter, she pretends to be a shaman who can rid villagers of evil spirits, and ironically, her juggled deceits often become real. However, she soon loses her power to people’s greed and apathy, and in meagre attempts of salvation, her life story eventually ends in tragedy and disillusion.
