Mulan International Film Festival programme note:
Girls Always Happy portrays a single mother living with her daughter in a Beijing hutong. Looking at the contemporary urban life with a novel perspective, Girls Always Happy represents the spectacle of mutual repulsion, hatred, and harm between a single mother and her daughter, and yet from their despair rises the power of tender love. The complexity indicates the unique observation and expression of the director YANG Mingming on female relationships.
