Who is Hao Ran?
Directed by Yang Yishu, 2006 (70 min.)

This documentary is about a planned street fight of some teenagers wandering about in a small town in East China. In their lives, such street fights occur almost everyday. Constantly prompted by unfulfilled impulses and inexhaustible energy, these youngsters have a lot of time on their hands and they itch for excitement and violence. Amidst a confusing reality, they loiter about feeling lost and desolate. While these teens are tough and strong, they are also quite fragile.
