Shadow player Lee De Ren's group is last one in Zhuang'he County. This is the common situation for Traditional culture. In order to make more people to know this culture heritage, Lee show his shadow play in TV show and made national tour but he and his group's show are treat as merchandise. At last, Lee came back to his hometown. He doesn't want to admit this defeat and organized his old shadow play friends to do something in Zhuang'he County.
Going Home (2013) According to the cinematographic working with Dalian Lianning Shadow play group's national tour. I made a confidence relationship with Lee Deren. During one month live with them. I deeply recognized that the traditional culture like shadow play is one part of our life and village is the beat resource of it. With the modernize become more and more stronger, people prefer to enjoy their modern life in big city and that made these shadow players have to find another way to maintain their heritage. And unfortunately, the result is not really good.
