Little Moth (China's Past, Present, Future on Film series)


Peng Tao. China. 2007. 99 min. Narrative. Digibeta.

Part of the "China's Past, Present, Future on Film" series

An impoverished country couple buys a crippled young girl and puts her to work begging on city streets. Her desperate condition is heightened in a gripping episode of escape with a one-armed boy who is also forced to beg. Using a cast of non-professionals, Peng Tao turns the sordid street life of small town China into a chain-reaction tale of human cruelty and unforgettable suspense.
