One Eightieth of Zhang Tianyi
Directed by Shuhan Fan
When Zhang Tianyi graduates from the most prestigious law school in China in 2014, he is one of 8 million young Chinese who are competing for new jobs. To stand out, Zhang Tianyi makes an outrageous career choice. He opens a small restaurant in Beijing to sell spicy rice noodles in the style of his hometown in Hunan. But, as he states, the rice noodles are just a medium to deliver his philosophy of individual empowerment.
Shuhan Fan is a Chinese female documentary filmmaker and a recent graduate from Northwestern University. Her creative vision is to use colorful, graphic, and quirky imagery to blend mundane social activities into metaphorical expressions.
