Last train home Gui tu lie che ( visu )
28 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in Chinese and English and held by 1,086 libraries worldwide
"Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as an astonishing 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year's holiday. This mass exodus is the largest human migration on the planet, an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Working over several years in classic verite, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan... travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades. Emotionally engaging and starkly beautiful, Last Train Home's intimate observation of one fractured family sheds light on the human cost of China's ascendance as an economic superpower."

"This is a heartbreaking story from Wenlou, a small village in central China, where 60% of the villagers are infected with HIV. There are at least 250,000 people in seven provinces in central China who were infected as a result of a blood donor program in the early nineties. Impoverished peasants sold their blood to clinics that used unsanitary gathering methods."--Container

Every year in China the same dramatic ritual takes place: In the factory towns of the south, millions of migrant factory workers fight for space on overcrowded trains, trying to return home for the Chinese New Year. The Zhangs have lived this way for twenty years. They barely know their own children, who are being raised by relatives back home. This year, the tenous family model has broken and they travel with additional purpose: they must bring home their runaway teenage daughter, so that she can return to school and not have to spend the rest of her life in a factory

"En Chine, à chaque année le même rituel dramatique se produit. Dans les villes usines du Sud, des millions de travailleurs migratoires se battent pour une place dans des trains bondés de monde. Ils essaient tous de rentrer dans leurs villages pour le Nouvel an chinois. Madame et Monsieur Zhang vivent ainsi depuis une vingtaine d'années. Ils connaissent à peine leurs enfants qui ont été élevés par les grands-parents restés au village. Cette année, la fragile cellule familiale s'est effondrée et les Zhang voyagent avec un autre but en tête : ramener à la maison leur adolescente fugueuse afin qu'elle retourne à l'école et qu'elle n'ait pas à passer le reste de sa vie dans une usine."--Verso du conteneur
