A documentary by Chen Chuanxing on the extraordinary life and remarkable academic achievement of 96-year-old Florence Chia-ying Yeh could well be the most beautiful and poetic film of the year. Focusing on Yeh's lifelong dedication to Chinese traditional literature and poetry spanning almost a century, the documentary demonstrates her great contribution and unyielding spirit regardless of wars, social turmoil and family tragedy, including the loss of her daughter and son-in-law. This film also shows the power of literature, and how it can enlighten people's lives, guiding the audience to see the beautiful world and idyllic life through the poet's eyes. According to Yeh herself, the qualities of Chinese poetry enable people to be resilient and persevere through times of adversity.
