*Au cinéma en version anglaise uniquement. This is the true story of Li Cunxin, adapted from his best-selling autobiography and telling how, amidst the chaos of Maos Cultural Revolution, he was chosen to leave his peasant family and sent on an amazing journey as it turned out towards freedom and personal triumph. Lis story unfolds as China was emerging from Maos grand vision. This is about how Li overcame adversity, discovering and exploring his natural abilities and talent as a great classical dancer. This meant not only dealing with his own physical limitations but also eventually the punishment meted out by a highly suspicious Chinese government after Lis defection to the US. In America Li found a completely different and captivating new world but there were other difficulties he could never have imagined. Here is a poignant yet triumphant story that has the ability to touch both worlds.
