Guilin Girls 1996 Video Movie by Paul Donker Duyvis.
Happy and Curious Chinese Children playing in the Guilin River
a Story of an Encounter
a Story of an Encounter witout Words
about watching each orher with an open mind.
The beautiful music comes from a cassete given to me by a traditional Singer living in Inner Mongolia.
I heard the woman singing and I was moved. She saw it and gave me a cassete with her songs.
A few days later these Guilin Children jumped upon me with a generous smile.
I decided o combine these two precious gifts to memorize these moments of communication without words . . .
Listning to them still makes me feel good and than I wonder what happened to the young girls and the Mogolian Singer.
Hopefully they are still so happy and generous.
