  A sinuous paved mountain road leads to the village of Shibadong in Xiangxi Tujia-Miao autonomous prefecture, a place that marks President Xi Jinping's first use of the strategy of targeted poverty.

  During Xi's stop at the village in Hunan province on Nov 3, 2013, he said efficient measures for targeted poverty alleviation should be adopted on the basis of the village's reality. The village then aimed to forge itself into the "most beautiful village in China" by protecting its natural environment and indigenous culture.


  On the afternoon of October 10, Hold Your Hands, keynote film for celebrating the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, marked its premiere at Hunan People’s Hall, receiving good comments. Cai Zhenhong, Member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and Director of the Propaganda Department of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee, and other Hunan provincial leaders attended the film premiere.


  Set in the national strategy of “targeted poverty alleviation” and derived from true stories of Shibadong Village, Xiangxi Tujia-Miao autonomous prefecture, the film will be screened on October 13.


  The film depicts the inner world of villagers and reflects the change of time in a poetic film language, which causes the audience to think about how to shake off poverty and to what degree in poverty alleviation.
