Blind Mountain Movie Trailer

Blind Mountain (C盲山; Máng shān) is a 2007 Chinese film directed by Li Yang and is Li’s first feature film since his 2003 debut Blind Shaft. It is also known as Road Home.

Like Li’s previous film, Blind Shaft, which dealt with the notoriously dangerous mining industry, Blind Mountain turns a sharply critical eye towards another one of China’s continuing social problems, this time selling women for marriage in modern-day China.
