Synopsis

“The Sound of Innocence” features young faces from various Chinese ethnic minority communities living in the eternally flowery, mountainous, and racially diverse Yunnan province of China. Facing the rapidly growing landscape of commercialism and the forceful assimilation to the dominant Han culture, four youngsters who harbor complex sentiments for their traditional musical arts, ranging from pride to indifference, struggle to find their cultural identities by rediscovering their aboriginal music while pondering its relevance. “The Sound of Innocence” echoes the pristine melodies produced by suona and sanxian, and reveals what it takes to honor “traditions” and the personal significance of it.
