Lingshui ranked among China's most beautiful shooting locations
Lingshui Li autonomous county in Hainan province was selected as one of China's top four most beautiful shooting locations at a promotion activity held on May 16 during the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.
With its unique tropical scenery and humanistic resources, Lingshui Li autonomous county has become a favorite place for filmmakers from home and abroad.
The film The Song of Lingshui, which was just shortlisted at the 7th Vancouver International Chinese Film Festival in Canada, has fully blended in the autonomous county's cultural elements such as Lingshui Diaoluo Mountain National Forest Park, Boundary Island, and Qingshui Bay. The movie tells a tortuous love story between a young Chinese man Zheng Yujie and Russian college student Anna, while also reflecting on the friendship between the two countries.
