3. Song of the Phoenix

Song of the Phoenix depicts two generations of suona players, delving into their dedication to this traditional Chinese musical instrument and their father-son relationship.

The film is the swan song of famous Chinese filmmaker Wu Tianming, who died shortly after the film's completion in 2014. Wu was considered one of the leading "Fourth Generation" directors.

It also sparked an online controversy after veteran film producer Fang Li knelt down to beg for more screenings for late cinematic master Wu Tianming's last film.

The unlikely move saved the almost-dying art-house film which quickly grossed 80 million yuan ($12 million) box office.
