Thanks to the press conference held in Tsinghua University auditorium, we have some information about the film.
The shooting took place into the Tsinghua University campus. Some students of the university join the cast during the shooting. The script of the film has been changed several times during the shooting (even 20 minutes before the shooting) but the plot of the film remains quite mysterious. But what we know is that the main subject is the youth. Director Li Fangfang was tight-lipped but she revealed that she showed the script to the actors and let them choose their own role. The shooting in Beijing has been completed, the crew will shoot soon to the Yunnan. Shooting should be completed in September.
Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, Huang Xiaoming played four students who harbour dreams of Tsinghua. Zhang Ziyi played a student and seemed to enjoy her “friendly” character and the stress-free shooting.
