Show Wuhan to the whole world
A Japanese documentary film director who has settled in Nanjing for 7 years, with a director and two photographers, has been in Wuhan for 10 days and filmed “Ten Families, Ten Stories, One City”.
The documentary “Long Time No See, Wuhan” directed by Takeuchi Ryo was broadcast on the Internet in less than 24 hours, and the broadcast volume has exceeded 25 million times.
The documentary tells the stories of 10 ordinary families during the epidemic prevention and control period, and also shows Wuhan after being “cured” to the public. Wuhan is real and warm under the bright view of Takeuchi.
As the filming progressed, Takeuchi discovered, “I didn’t expect Wuhan people to be so enthusiastic, the food was so delicious, and the scenery along the river was beautiful.” His shooting in Wuhan was particularly smooth. “Many people signed up for us as assistants for free, helped us drive for free, and the hotel also provided us with rooms at the lowest price.” As he said in Weibo: “I like this city every day.”
According to Takeuchi Ryo, “Long time no see, Wuhan” has landed on foreign social platforms simultaneously, and will launch a special edition on the largest online platform in Japan. “My biggest purpose is to show this documentary to the whole world. There are indeed too many prejudices against Wuhan. If no one has updated the current situation in Wuhan, many foreigners’ information still stays in February, and Wuhan is still very dangerous.”
And Takeuchi is looking forward to, “If circumstances permit, I want to come to Wuhan again this November or December to hold our annual fan meeting”.
