Weiyena - The Long March Home

AT 2020, 96 min, Weina Zhao, Judith Benedikt

Two family histories, one century and two metropolises merge in one person: Weina Zhao, whose parents called her „Vienna“ - Wéiyenà - because they emigrated to Austria. Her journey into the history of China leads to the Cultural Revolution, modern China and tackles the great issues of the 21st century: migration, identity and the search for one‘s past.
