To Live is Better than to Die 好死不如賴活著
 
Chen Wei Jun 陳為軍

This is a heartbreaking story from Wenlou, a small village in central China, where more than 30% of the villagers are infected with HIV because they tried to make a little extra money selling their blood in the early 90s. The director started filming in one family's courtyard at the beginning of the summer, 2001, in order to portray the everyday life of this ordinary family. The film has already been selected for the prestigious Sundance Festival and Europe's biggest documentary festival IDFA in the main competition for the Joris Ivens Award.

本片紀錄了河南省上蔡縣一個愛滋病疫情村的農村家庭,九十年代初,為了掙一點外快,30% 的村民因為賣血不幸感染上愛滋病。攝像機境頭直面一個愛滋病人家庭,紀錄了面對死亡,他們是如何度過剩餘的最後時光的。該片獲得多項國際大獎。
