SYNOPSIS Over 800,000 people have been forcibly relocated as a result of China’s controversial South-to-North Water Diversion Project, the largest of its kind in the world. In the process, three ancient cities and 247,000 acres of fertile
farmland have been submerged. Last Harvest follows the riveting journey of an elderly Chinese farming couple whose relocation is imminent as a result of this project. Director Hui Wang captures a remarkable and engaging human story at the intersection of connection and disconnection from land and culture, and of old and new China. Trailer
