So Long, My Son traces the lives of two families over three decades of social, political and human upheaval in China. Following the loss of a child in a tragic accident, their paths separate. Destinies ebb and flow, and fortunes are transformed under the impact of a country’s changing face. Yet even as their lives diverge, a common search for truth and reconciliation around the tragedy remains. But sometimes it can take a lifetime to say farewell. So Long, My Son chronicles people and a society in full transformation – in which human relationships and the tumultuous evolution of a nation are inevitably and inextricably intertwined.

WANG Xiaoshuai was a pioneer figure of Chinese independent films in the 1990s, and is one of very few masters who remains true to his art in spite of rampant commercialism in nowadays Chinese film market. By virtue of strong personal style, deep concern for humanity, and diligent independent filmmaking, WANG’s works have competed in Cannes Film Festival four times (twice in Un Certain Regard, twice in main Competition), twice in the Berlinale, and also at Venice and San Sebastian film festivals. He has been appointed chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture for his artistic accomplishments. His directorial debut, The Days, was held in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Wang has received many distinguished honors notably the 51th Berlinale Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize for Beijing Bicycle (2001), the Jury Prize for Shanghai Dreams (2005) in the Cannes Main Competition and the second Berlinale Silver Bear for Best Screenplay for In Love We Trust (2008). His most recent works Red Amnesia (2014) and So Long, My Son both examine the far-reaching consequences of the past on the present.
