Appreciation of the movie The Composer about Xian Xinghai
The Composer was the first movie ever co-produced by China and Kazakhstan. Since its premiere in 2019, it has received many awards at home and abroad during film festivals. It was adapted based on the last five years Xian Xinghai spent in Alma-Ata and the close friendship he established while in exile with the local composer Bakhytzhan Baikadamov. Though in hardship, Xian remained emotionally connected with his motherland, and composed excellent musical pieces to express his reminiscences of his country and hope for a victory in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.
