A recent documentary, The Magic Craft of Suzhou, directed by Sun Zengtian, zooms in on the intangible cultural heritage of Suzhou in East China's Jiangsu province.

The documentary, released on July 10, chooses nine representative regional handicrafts, including Song brocade weaving skills, Su embroidery, Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) furniture and olive pit carving.

It tells the stories of 12 inheritors of intangible cultural heritage, who vary in age and area of expertise, but have all been dedicating their lives to protecting and passing down these arts and crafts' styles.

The city was listed by UNESCO in its Creative Cities Network in 2014 as a Creative City of Crafts and Folk Arts.
