Cultural revolution pic to open in China

'Years' has been sold across most of Asia

HONG KONG — Mei Ah Film Production Co.’s latest pic, “Years Without Epidemic,” is gearing up for a February release in China. A Hong Kong release date has not been confirmed.

The $1 million pic has been sold to Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. Mei Ah is in discussions for distribution in the U.S., France, Japan and Korea, says Sara Law, Mei Ah’s assistant manger, distribution.

Pic, helmed by cinematographer Lu Yue, is set in the days of the Cultural Revolution, when millions of students were sent to the countryside as a part of Chairman Mao’s re-education program.

Story follows Xing Yu, played by Taiwanese-born actress Shu Qi (“So Close,” “The Transporter”) who is stationed at the remote Red Post Town, and who doesn’t share the country’s Marxist idealism like her childhood pal, played by Fang Bin.

Xing Yu finds her world forever changed when she befriends a rebellious intellectual played by Liu Ye (“Lan Yu,” “Floating Landscape”).
