A film promotion themed "Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Reform and Opening-up," was held in a hotel in Beijing on November 29.

Nine films were recommended, including Homeland, which was listed by the State Film Administration as a key film to celebrate the 40th anniversary of reform and opening-up.

The film is also a tribute film welcoming the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

It is produced by filmmakers in the most direct, powerful and effective way, which is closely related to the reform and opening-up.

Homeland is directed by Zhou Qi, starring Wu Qijiang, Zhao Mengdi and Yang Caier, and is produced by Xiaoxiang Film Group Co. Ltd..

The film is based on the rural reform of Hunan Province, with the contemporary young people returning to the beautiful rural land to participate in land construction on the main line, focusing on the new changes brought about by rural reform after the 18th and 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

The film reveals the deep love of Chinese farmers for the land through three generation's deep concern about wasteland disposal. It will be released nationwide on December 28.

Homeland is the first film of the actress Yang. During filming, she was greatly shocked and felt more deeply the hard work of the peasants and the difficulty of harvesting.

In the film, she set up the image of rural women in the new era and became an ordinary and successful miniature figure in the tide of reform and opening-up.
