Documentaries / Comrade Yue
In “Comrade Yue”, filmmaker Yue Jianbo sketches an intimate and artistic portrait of himself. Born in 1980 in a small mountain village in China’s Shanxi Province, he’s one of many village boys who race through school, marry a woman and become a miner in the nearby coal town.
Yet his hobbies – running marathons and playing rock music – slowly lead him to explore a different path. He looks deep inside himself and starts questioning his own sexual identity and the social mores ruling his small town. After 6 years of marriage, he decides to come out as a gay person to his wife, divorces her and sets out on an emotional journey to redefine his place within the coal town community.
