Director: Yang Chao 导演：杨超
Crosscurrent follows the winter journey of a small cargo boat sailing up the Yangtze River.
Gao Chun, the young captain, disembarks at every port on his journey in search of love. However, he gradually realises that the women he meets at different ports appear to be the same person, except that they get younger and younger as the ship sails upstream. Bewildered, he sails upriver alone to the snow-capped mountain, where the Yangtze River begins. There, he unveils the mystery of the woman and the secret of the river.
A breathtaking, poetic travelogue up the Yangtze River, Crosscurrent captures the stunning landscapes of modern China, together with her melancholic knots of yearning, mourning and the shifting sands of time.
