A new film "Fighting Men of China," which centers on ambitious Chinese Internet entrepreneurs, will hit theatres next week.
Liu Yadang is the film director.
"Within the forty years since China implemented 'reform and opening up', there are a huge number of people who intended to open their business. However, public attention often went to those high-impact entrepreneurs. Actually there are some other entrepreneurs who deserve concerns for their share of ups and downs. I'm quite interested in their stories."
"Fighting Men of China" tells how a computer programmer transforms into an ambitious entrepreneur.
Zhao Lixin plays the programmer Chu Zhenhui in the upcoming movie. He described his role this way.
"I have big dreams in the film. In my mind, the tremendous changes that have taken place in our life nowadays are often brought about by those people who are persistent in their pursuit of dreams."
It is scheduled to open in the cinemas on December 18th to mark the 40th anniversary of China's reform drive, since the economic policy was put forward during the third plenary session of the eleventh central committee of Communist Party of China on December 18th, 1978.
