Logline: One summer, in a Chinese fishing village, teenage boy Leaf’s quiet life is interrupted by the return of his childhood friend Qing Chen. Love blossoms in the summer breeze.
Artist Statement: Beyond The Green Mountain tells a simple love story between two teenage boys in a small fishing village in China. I want to capture the purity of first love, especially as it exists in an environment where homosexuality is not even a possibility in people’s consciousness. Feelings are feelings. They exist whether we recognize them or not. Will our brains catch up with our hearts?
