Cast｜Wen Jing, Wen LuoYi, Gianluca Zoppa
The brutality, the cowardly love and the dramatic intertwining of destiny are the elements of a story with a disconcerting ending.
Gianluca Zoppa was born in Milan on May 1st, 1969, and lives in Asia since 1994. He is an actor, writer, director, and producer. After his first acting experience in Beijing in 2017, he studied at Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute – West Hollywood. Returned to China, he was involved in numerous feature films, shorts and TV series. In 2019, he produced and directed his first short-film, “Luca”.
Jing is the story of a lonely woman, a victim of physical and psychological violence. Poverty and lack of family support forced the young woman to abandon her son, who was conceived in rape. The film tells a real story by embracing and crossing over common societal issues such as abandonment, violence, exploitation and gender inequalities throughout the narrative. I wanted to stage the feeling of helplessness that many women have to face in their life, forced, more often than not, to succumb to the oppression of an unscrupulous reality. Jing is forced to seek hope far from her homeland, exploited daily by the law of profit and betrayed by a man’s promises. In her total psychological isolation, Jing wishes to take back the most important thing from her past. Her research, however, leads her to collide with a cruel reality.
