Weiyena – ein Heimatfilm
Weiyena – The Long March Home
Two family histories, one century and two metropolises merge in one person: Weina Zhao, whose parents called her “Vienna" – Wéiyěnà – because they emigrated to Austria. Her journey into the history of China leads to the Cultural Revolution, modern China and tackles the great issues of the 21st century: migration, identity and the search for one‘s past.
