Shooting the Tiger by Xiaoxiao Xu (CN/NL) portrays the traditional festival Shèhuo in the Northwest of China. Farmers invoke blessings for an abundant and fruitful harvest, through theatrical performances, songs, and acrobatics. In a world where the connection between people and the soil has become frail, Shooting the Tiger celebrates an aspect of Chinese culture that is disappearing, or better, evolving. Xu shows that there is comfort in traditions, even when they are not ours. We follow Xu on her journey into the colourful world of Shèhuo. Traveling from village to village, the residents welcome her into their homes in preparation for the events. These moments allow for the mysterious and alienating atmosphere of the festival to appear.
