More information about My Country, My Parents

Zhang Rui from the Chinese website China.org.cn shared a few interesting facts about My Father, My Forefathers (my own maladroit translation). He mentioned that the film was tentatively titled Me and My Father. Let’s call it My Father, My Forefathers before anything official appears (Update: the film is now titled My Country, My Parents).

Actress Zhang Ziyi, actor-and-director Wu Jing, comedian Shen Teng, and actor-and-director Xu Zheng come together to direct four short films as part of a new anthology drama paying tribute to China’s families.
Tentatively titled “Me and My Father,” the project focuses on normal Chinese families in four different eras, as well as their collective memories. According to the production company, China Film Co., Ltd., the project looks to shed light on family relationships and how parental love can enlighten children.

The new film will be included as the final installment of “National Day Celebration” trilogy. Though the films are not connected in terms of their storylines, their themes echo the idea of creating a national tribute through the perspectives of normal people.

“It’s very challenging for me during the creative process, but with sincere and strong emotions, we will show our respect for the selfless dedication of our elder generations,” said Zhang Ziyi, whose short film in the patriotic omnibus will be her directorial debut.

“Me and My Father” will debut on this year’s National Day on Oct. 1, 2021.
