Chinanews client, Beijing, July 22 (Reporter Song Yusheng) "Those real history has a certain connection with today's reality."
Recently, the major revolutionary historical film "Three Bays Adaptation" was released. In an interview with reporters, Yang Hu, the director of the film, said that he hopes that today's young people can see through this film what Chinese young people were like nearly a hundred years ago.
"Three Bay Village" in the film.
"Three Bays Adaptation" relies on real history.
In September 1927, in Sanwan Village, Yongxin County, Jiangxi Province, Mao Zedong led the Workers and Peasants Revolutionary Army who participated in the Autumn Harvest Uprising to reorganize.
Since then, "building the branch on the company" has become "an important beginning for the Communist Party of China to build a new type of people's army."
At that time, the Autumn Harvest Uprising failed, Jingwenjia City transferred troops, Mao Zedong led the uprising troops all the way to the south along the Luoxiao Mountains, in order to preserve the revolutionary power and further develop...
On the marching road, there was an interception in the front and a chase after it, and wars broke out frequently.
Many officers and soldiers were infected with malaria, and the troops were attrition seriously.
The original revolutionary ranks of more than 5,000 have dropped sharply to less than 1,000.
At this time, there was a depressed mood in the army. Some intellectuals and officers and soldiers from the old army were pessimistic and wavered in the face of defeat in the battle and the difficult environment, and often people left without saying goodbye.
On September 29, 1927, when the insurgents arrived in Sanwan Village, Yongxin, Jiangxi, they were reorganized and the party branch was built on the company. The party’s leadership over the army was established organizationally. This is to build a new type of people’s army under the leadership of the proletariat. An important beginning.
In October, the insurgents arrived at Jinggang Mountain and began the struggle to establish a rural revolutionary base.
In the narrative of this period of history, there are many articles that use words such as "suffering" and "despair".
The galloping horse presents the scene of war.
Yang Hu told reporters that although the filming time of the film is not long, the preparation time is very long.
"When I was a recruit, I was listening to the Sanwan reorganization and the establishment of the branch in the company. Therefore, the historical evolution and context are basically very clear."
As a director, Yang Hu has done research on the lives and resumes of these historical figures.
"We have listed the biographies for each character. In the biographies, I capture each character's personality, different things, even his family background, what his parents do... We have done very detailed Research and research."
In his view, these historical figures are actually young people back then.
"Throwing the head and sprinkling blood, these are not some adjectives, but the facts."
On September 25, 1927, the autumn harvest uprising troops encountered an attack by three enemy troops in Shankouyan Village. In order to cover the safe transfer of the troops, Lu Deming, who was only 22 years old, returned from the valley and led his team to block the enemy. Unfortunately, he died heroically.
In fact, the troops participating in the Autumn Harvest Uprising went to Sanwan, and only 700 people remained after the reorganization.

But even these young people who are not afraid of sacrifice are also the "high-achieved students" of that era.
He Changgong went to France for a work-study program in 1919. After returning to China in 1924, he started education and launched a peasant movement.
Wu Zhonghao, known as one of the "Four Heroes" of Jinggangshan, was admitted to Peking University in 1922, and under the influence of Li Dazhao, he embarked on the road of revolution.
He Tingying, after graduating from middle school in 1924, was admitted to the Department of Mathematics of Shanghai Datong University.
"This is the young people in China a hundred years ago." In Yang Hu's view, they have faith, ideals, and pursuits, and want to change their destiny, change this nation, and change this society.
When it comes to the topic of film casting, Yang Hu said bluntly that his standard is that the actor "must conform to the character's experience and cultural level, and his understanding and image of the character must be close to this character."
"This is so real, it's not just pretending to be acting desperately."
He believes that these real histories will impress today's young people, because the spirit in them is the same as today's young people.
