Recently produced by GHY Culture & Media, under the guidance of the Beijing Radio and Television Bureau, the Office of the Beijing Leading Group for Poverty Alleviation Cooperation and Support Cooperation, and the Youth Working Committee of the China TV Drama Production Industry Association, a series of online films entitled “Poverty Alleviation” “Beijing” has officially launched!
A total of 10 “I’m from Beijing” online film series will be shot, telling 10 unique and wonderful stories of “Beijing Youth Poverty Alleviation”. Under the trumpet of “Poverty Alleviation”, a group of young cadres from Beijing actively responds to the national call to bid farewell to the familiar life in Beijing and head to the poverty areas where they were most needed. From the snow-covered plateau in the northwest to the remote mountainous areas in the central region. From the sweeping grasslands to inaccessible forests … they stubbornly overcome difficulties, actively cultivate their skills and fade the impetuousness of their urban youth. They helped lift the lives of the poor and contribute to Beijing’s wisdom and youth strength. While helping the poor, the young cadres also realize their own life and social values.
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China much efforts have been placed on poverty alleviation. At this stage, decisive efforts to overcome poverty have made progress resulting in a brilliant chapter in the history of human anti-poverty.
These series of online movies hope to use realistic creative methods to tell moving stories regarding the current poverty alleviation work, to show its major achievements and also the nostalgia of the new rural construction in different areas of the motherland.
Presently, the first three parts of the movie “I’m from Beijing”, “I’m from Beijing’s Iron Pot Stew Big Goose”, “I’m from Beijing’s Helping Brothers”, and “I’m from Beijing’s Happy New Year” have entered the scripting stage. The shoot started in November, and went live on Youku and iQiyi during the Spring Festival of 2020. Other stories are also in the early planning. Following Hebei, Henan, Chongqing, Guizhou, Heilongjiang, the creative team will be going to Xinjiang to collect poverty alleviation materials as research material for its remaining stories.
GHY Culture & Media has always adhered to the “content first” approach and explored the possibility of the “main theme online movie”. It is believed that these 10 unique stories that are well-received by the audience will stand out. “I’m from Beijing” online movie series will debut in the Spring Festival of 2020, so stay tuned!
