Still: The Old Barber

The Old Barber

20 Mar 200829 Mar 2008

Uncle Jing is a 93-year-old barber with over 80 years working experience. Even now he continues to move through the alleyways and backstreets of Beijing to the homes of his old customers, cutting their hair before returning home to work on an ancient clock that always runs five minutes fast. A record of one man's ordinary and tranquil life in an fast-paced, ever-changing city.

Preceded by Giuseppe Tornatore's seven-minute film Reunion.
