Yellow Hill: The Stranger's Tale is a story of regret, lost time with a parent that's served up with a healthy dose of action and revenge.
Excerpt from Bai Ling's video interview:
What was it about the story that grabbed you?
It's a part of history never told on screen, its something very important because people need to acknowledge and remember that history and those difficulties in life in order to move forward. To appreciate and to be proud of who they are. As a Chinese person I feel responsible, and my with heart as an actress to have the power and voice to tell that story. In the movie I say a line, "I used to be a woman, but a man taught me to be a man". You can see that there is a lot of sadness there. It’s a story about revenge and justice, about life during that time. I relate to The Stranger because I feel myself that I am a Stranger, in a strange land, a strange culture, a strange life. She had an innocent dream and brought to America by her parents, and her father basically sold her. I think, personally to me, that anything that is strange is interesting and intriguing because there is a lot of mystery and a lot of coincidence happening in life, and a lot of beautiful, beautiful surprises. I somehow understand the Stranger's journey as a woman.
Also, she really kicks ass. I'm very proud and very happy to be a producer, this film is going to be amazing. We are going to show you and you will see how facinating it is, its a film, its history, but its fun. A lot of dept, a lot of great characters that you've never seen before. I'm very proud and I want to make it happen!
