Director
Zhang Haoye

In 2014 and 2015, Zhang plays two important roles of Alan and Marcos in Shakespeare’s drama "Titus", The play has been staged in Beijing, Shanghai and Edinburgh drama festival. In 2015, his Bruce style band performed at the Beijing festival Successfully. In 2015, he began to act as an independent advertising director, and produced film scripts. In 2017, He wrote and edited his first film 《The Beacon》.
 
By chance, I got a book from my producer, the book was given to him by Mr. Akino, a Chinese Rock Artist. The book shows children's paintings and their profiles in an autistic school in Beijing.
I felt all sorts of emotion surging within after read this book two times.
I'm ashamed to say I know nothing about autism before then. After consulting with the producer, we decided to shoot an autism movie.
  By looking for information and on-the-spot investigation, we found that in China, the vast majority of people with autism are not as lucky as the children that Mr Akino helps. Especially in some places, they do not have access to resources such as big cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Society is not paying enough attention to them, and even many autistic families choose to avoid it intentionally or unintentionally. On the other hand, according to some experts, the proportion of children with autism is surprisingly high in China, with one in six children!
  With such research results, we entered the script stage. While writing the script, we also watched and reviewed a lot of films about autism of China and abroad. In the process, we gradually made clear the direction of the story, and we should do a more realistic film that meets the current China.
  First of all, big cities’story doesn't represent a typical China. Characters and stories should come from places. I’m from the north of China, I’m familiar with the north, I think the rough and vicissitudes of north is more in tune with the tonality of the film.
  Second, I don't want to be too dramatic. It's a film that talking about human more than a story.
  Thirdly, and most importantly, I do not give the autistic family in the story even a glimmer of unrealistic hope.
  Because, telling a story about autism in this place, my feeling is not sad and touched, but sorrow. Touching and sad are tears natural surging,but sorrowful emotion need more rational thinking. If we can make more people to think about it,one day the clouds will disperse.
