導演手記（From the Director）
Xinjiang is the largest province in China, taking up 1/5 of the landmass, with the largest Chinese Islamic population. Having lived amongst Muslims in the past, I have always been fascinated by the vast landmass, the exotic ethnic customs, and the mythical stories of Nasreddin from Xinjiang ever since I was a child. But over the years the real image of Xinjiang has faded, where its life and its people are hardly ever in the news or on television. It wasn’t until the July 5th riots that Xinjiang came back into our collective consciousness.
I met and became good friends with brothers Aydar and Xilaili while filming ESP Urumqi Parkour Team. Aydar is the team leader who’s deeply passionate about parkour. He wrote to me recently to say that in order to lessen his mom’s financial burdens, he decided not to attend college. He found a security guard job at a bank. And he said he’s not too happy with his brother Xilaili’s grades. But the two brothers will always have that common love for parkour. He asked if I would film a trailer for their team in order to submit to the National Parkour Competition to be held in Beijing. I agreed to make a trailer, but also wanted to document the young, passionate and fearless parkour kids.
I hope, through our film, people will get to know more about Xinjiang, understand Xinjiang youth, their lives, and gain a glimpse to their coming of age.
影片介紹（About the Documentary）
This is a story about Uyghur youth in Xinjiang.
Seventeen-years-old Aydar fails his college entrance exam. A teenager with a passion for parkour, he now has to be the man of the house since his dad passed away. But his adventurous younger brother Xilaili loves extreme sports and wants to one day become as awesome as Jackie Chan. Their mom worries over their love for a dangerous sport, their reckless lifestyle, and wishes that they would be more grounded.
Kids from different ethnic groups but of similar age join the ESP Parkour Team with hope of making it to the National Parkour Competition in Beijing. They spend endless hours looking for the perfect practicing grounds, relentlessly raising funds for the trip to Beijing, and seek help and support wherever they can get. Each step is fraught with challenges as team members begin to waver in their decision to compete. But the fearless Xilaili and the newest member Sadamu have their eyes on that prize in Beijing.
Aydar knows he won’t be able to participate in the competition but helps Xilaili raise traveling funds behind their mother’s back, while Xilaili puts on street performances. Sadamu also travels thousands of miles to seek help in relatives. His grandparents are reluctant and discouraging, his estranged and drunken father refuses, but his mother’s love and generosity further infuse Sadamu’s passion. Excited, Sadamu returns to Urumqi to prepare for their big trip. Meanwhile, the brother’s mom finally finds out about Xilaili’s desire to participate in this extreme sport competition, and despite her fears and worries, she accompanies Xilaili to the train station and watches as her young son embarks on his own journey to manhood.
The competition is even more intimidating than the boys expected. Watching Xilaili and Sadamu during the live televised competition, Aydar and his mom wish they were there to encourage and cheer the boys on. Both boys perform poorly and are defeated. But on their train ride home, the boys reflect on this journey. Eyes closed, mind open, for the first time the boys finally see that they are winners after all. Despite loosing in the parkour competition, they are humbled and gain a true sense of self in this game of life.
