Produced by G.H.Y Culture & Media, script written by Guo Jingyu and Yang Yong, directed by Ju Xingmao and Lai Mukuan, with a group of G.H.Y Culture & Media’s outstanding artists participating collectively, the TV series Perfect Village is currently in production and is set to be completed by November 15. This is yet another blockbuster work by G.H.Y Culture & Media and Guo Jingyu’s team, following the highly acclaimed TV series Perfect Youth.
Perfect Village, a 36-episode TV series, sees the party and the country, leading its citizens in a historical mission to ‘eradicate poverty and build a well-off society resolutely,’ as the background story. Adhering to the “Zhi-zhi Dual Support” ideology, 3 youths — namely Tang Dashi, Xin Lan and Shi Quanyou — help to motivate the endogenous impetus of the poor, lead the villagers in developing a prosperous industry, implement relocation, develop a unique and touristy town and fulfil the adage “clear waters and green mountains are as good as mountains of gold and silver”; it is a story about building a beautiful countryside together. At the same time, this group of ambitious youths also realize their personal life values through the poverty alleviation drive.
Poverty is a worldwide problem and anti-poverty is a common goal amongst mankind. As a country with a massive population, the fight to end poverty has always been a mission of the Communist Party of China. Despite its huge population, China has achieved remarkable results in its “poverty alleviation” campaign, which has lifted more than 700 million people out of poverty. China has emerged as the country with the highest poverty reduction rate in the world, and is also the first country in the world to complete the UN Millennium Development Goals.
As Guo Jingyu, the chief scriptwriter of the film, said, “in recent years, the party and the country have put in large amount of support, scaled up the anti-poverty campaign and deepened their influence, in fighting poverty. They have made decisive progress and written a new chapter in the human history of anti-poverty. This is our party’s hard work; it is worth the publicity and respect, and it is necessary to have more audiences understanding and supporting it through artistic works. The TV series, Perfect Village, focuses on the responsibilities of the present times and through the hero’s poverty alleviation acts, more audiences will be able to understand this great historical mission and participate in it.
The film consists of three individual stories; the first part stars Yang Zhigang, Zhang Zijian, Wang Kuirong, Jia Hongwei, Qi Huan, Yang Zitong and He Zhengjun, the second part stars Yue Lina, Zhao Hengzhang, Zhang Shaohua, Yang Kun, Heizi, Sun Zhongqiu, Zhao Xiaokun, Yu Hongzhou and Wang Yisheng and the third part stars Liu Zhiyang, He Yuhong, Dai Xiangyu, Xiao Yin, Niu Beiren, Gu Jing and Ji Chenmu.
