Hot Docs Synopsis by Michelle Latimer: In a lyrical and cinematic ode to memory, acclaimed Up the Yangtze director Yung Chang takes us on a dreamlike voyage to recreate a childhood experience as he remembers it. Spanning oceans and continents, Chang’s film elegantly captures the breathtaking sunrise that exquisitely materializes from behind the peaks of Ali Shan, an historical mountain located in Taiwan. What emerges is a sensitive piece of visual poetry and a tribute to all who dare to dream.
