She, A Chinese Original Soundtrack Composed by John Parish, Xialolu Guo's SHE, A CHINESE, with an original score composed and played by John Parish has been on the festival circuit, winning The Golden Leopard (best film) at the Locarno Film Festival. The Soundtrack is being made available as a limited edition beautifully packaged Six Panel Digi and download. The unmistakable musical signature of Parish runs throughout, fragile and powerful ? pounding drums, banjos and drones. A must have for both fans of the film, Xialolu Guo and especially fans of John Parish. The 13 Parish tracks sit delicately alongside punk-rock songs of Chinese bands like Muma, Hang on the Box all rounded off with an early track by Fiest. At times melancholic this soundtrack mirrors the film by telling stories of leaving and longing. John Parish A British musician and producer best known for his work with singer and songwriter PJ Harvey, most recently releasing their second joint album A Woman A Man Walked By in 2009 which reached no.25 in UK chart while receiving widespread critical acclaim. He has worked on many film soundtracks as well as working with a range of other artists and projects such as co-writing the Eels album Souljacker (2001), producing artists from Sparklehorse to Tracey Chapman as well as recording and touring his own material released by Thrilljockey. She, A Chinese A rock 'n' roll odyssey that follows a young woman on a soulsearching journey. The film stands in stark contrast with its title, which would seem to define the cultural and ethnic origins of its protagonist. But this is a truly nationless movie, addressing contemporary issues that trespass borders and blur socio-political lines into a globalized world of shared values and collective problems. Challenging the visual style of traditional Chinese cinema, novelist and filmmaker Guo Xiaolu focuses her subtle narrative on an enigmatic woman who creates her own path. Framed in chapters and often using short, lyrical captions or silent, beautifully composed snapshots of landscapes, the film is an unpretentiously sophisticated hybrid of documentary, creative writing, visual poetry and cinema. An Optimum Releasing release of a U.K. Film Council, Film4 presentation, in association with Screen Yorkshire, EM Media, Intervista Digital Media, Rosem Films, of a Tigerlily Films, Warp X production.
