  1. And if you thought that was cool, check out the trailer for The Great Cause of China’s Foundation!

  2. That movie was inspiring to say the least… and the trailer looks awesome!

  3. i heard that the “my long march” was filmed secretly in mountainous province in china. they said it was banned at their local cinemas and this production is likewise to be shown in other parts of the world. basically, the current Chinese govt. has abandoned Maoist principles. this video is a further justification pf erecting a new Com. Party for the chinese people. the socialist fight is not yet done.

    • My understanding is that it was commissioned by the CPC as part of their extensive celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of the Long March.

      According to China’s PLA Daily:

      To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Long March of the Chinese Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army, the shooting of the film “My Long March” kicked off in Zunyi by the August First Film Studio recently. The film, with the fate of an ordinary young Red Army soldier Wang Rui as the main theme to thread through all the major events of the Long March, will be presented as a special gift to the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Long March. The film director Zhai Junjie intends to reveal this oriental myth—the 25,000- li Long March-to the audience through Wang’s extraordinary experiences in the major events of the Long March such as the Zunyi Meeting, the Xiangjiang River Campaign, Crossing the Chishui River for Four Times, and Crossing of the Luding Bridge, etc. Zhai Junjie is a famous film director, who has shot two films themed on the Long March, and he has now embarked on the route of the Long March for the third time to shoot this film, and through which to write a new chapter for his artistic career.
