Description
Summary:A sensitively shot personal portrait which documents the parallel decline of the ageing matriarch Grandma Jiang and the old neighborhood where she grew up - set to disappear under the inexorable forward march of gentrification. After suffering from a sudden stroke, Grandma Jiang loses much of the independence she fought to maintain. As her health deteriorates, suppressed conflicts within the family bubble to the surface. The Vanishing Spring Light is a film about love and loss within a family, about obligations and blood ties, about guilt, change and fate.
