Summary, etc.:
A stunning debut from Chinese director Bi Gan, KAILI BLUES is an audacious, mesmerizing work that announces the arrival of a major new filmmaker. In a small clinic in the rain-drenched city of Kaili, two preoccupied doctors live ghost-like lives. One of them, Chen, decides to fulfill a family wish and sets off on a train journey to search for his brother's abandoned child, only to find himself in a dreamlike world where past, present, and future--as well as fantasy and reality--become one. This remarkable visual achievement, was shot in the mining village Kaili, the director's birthplace, and incorporates poetry he has been writing since he was a teenager.
