"What's most important to me is the audience's reaction. Movies are made for the public; they are an emotional dialogue between the director and the audience, a means to express our shared humanity... I can't stand films that only express the directors own self involvement."
Yin Lichuan's film concerns the emotional relationship between a father and daughter.
