Produced by Huanxi Media Group Limited and directed by Zhangyimou, ONE SECOND has been short-listed for the In Competition section of the 69th Berlin International Film Festival, contending for the Golden Bear award together with excellent films from other countries and regions.
Five-time entrant of Berlin Film Festival returns to the origin after 30 years of light and show
Since RED SORGHUM became the first Asian movie to win the Golden Bear award in 1988, Zhang Yimou has participated in Berlin Film Festive for five times. His 30 years of relationship with Belin Film Festival has paved the way for Chinese films to go global.
With the announcement of the finalists of Belin Film Festival, the international version poster of ONE SECOND was released simultaneously, and leading actor Zhang Yi and the new leading lady started to attract attention. Who is the leading actress is still a secret. The film is about memories and feelings of people at the celluloid film era in the mid-1970’s.
