草原就像爷爷年老的身体一样,生病了需要休养生息;暑假来了,爷爷也沉沉睡去了,于是巴特尔与阿迪克尔,只能独自踏上河西走廊寻找父母亲。一路上映入眼帘的仅是断垣残壁、乾枯小溪、牧民弃屋,连喇嘛都为了水源弃庙而去。爷爷说“牧人的家在水草丰茂的地方”,然而如今草原干涸,长路漫漫荒凉苍茫,到底何处是家?有别于在第一届新加坡华语电影节放映的《告诉他们,我乘白鹤去了》的农村日常,导演李睿珺这回将视角放大到民族、环保、偏乡孩童的问题上,场面壮丽辽阔,诗意美感中带出沧桑况味。

River Road is the story of two Yugur ethnic minority brothers, Adikeer and Bartel, and their journey travelling through the Hexi Corridor of the Silk Road to go home to their parents. In their trek from their grandfather’s home near town to the distant grasslands where their parents have moved to find pastures to herd their sheep, the two boys are confronted with barren landscapes, abandoned villages, and decaying relics. Their journey becomes a search for their identity as Yugurs. The changing environment of the corridor exposes the loss of grazing lands to industrialization and traditions to a modern world. The loss of traditions in a harsh modern world are recurring themes in the films of director Li Ruijun, whose previous feature, Fly With The Crane, was screened to the popular acclaim at the 2013 Singapore Chinese Film Festival.
