Volcanic Passions (aka Loving Blood of the Volcano)

BSL-English supported event

In a tropical land at the foot of a volcano, “a deep grudge rankles, and ignites!”... don’t miss this rare opportunity to see a delicious fusion of Chinese peasant drama with Hollywood-style island exotica.

In this passionate melodrama, set in the South Seas, Zheng Junli plays an anguished hero whose heart is healed by the beautiful dancer: Willow Blossom (Li Li-Li). This is Li’s first leading role and the first of her six collaborations with writer/director Sun Yu.  Sun went on to write Queen of Sports for his prized star, and then to direct her in the star vehicle Daybreak (HippFest 2016).  

Presented in partnership with the Confucius Institute for Scotland at the University of Edinburgh
