Ballad Of The Knife Sharpener
The knife sharpener has been a fixture of Chinese street culture for centuries. In recent years, however, they have all but disappeared from Chinese city streets. This film follows Sui Gan Dan, a young knife sharpener with surprising vocal talent, as he tries to make ends meet in Beijing.
