Out Of Phoenix Bridge
Directed by Li Hong, 1997 (90 minutes, Ogawa Shinsuke Prize, Award of Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, 1997, Japan)

Four girls from the countryside live in a tiny crammed room in Beijing. Long hours of hard work and miserable living conditions turn out to be the happiest years of their lives when they enjoy the most freedom. This prize-winning film follows their rising and falling hopes and dreams as they reluctantly return to the closed world of their hometowns and future husbands.
