I am a peasant. I participated the Villager Documentary Project and I have been making documentary films for eight years. In 2012, my county People’s Congress started the changeover. I kept speaking for the people in my village and solving their problems, so I believed myself eligible to be a People’s Representative. So I took part in the candidate elections and hoped that I could do better for the villagers. The outcome was expected and I recorded the progress of fighting for the legitimate rights and interests of citizens with my camera.
