Not surprising, the film won the audience award – perhaps due to its humanity, its sensitivity, and its special attention to how human beings learn to adapt to their surroundings and their relationship to nature. It is wonderful to think of far-off Chinese festival goers choosing an Israeli film that really speaks to them!
