Director Du Jiayi's adventure drama, "Kora", has won Best Artistic Contribution Award in the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival yesterday (October 30).

When standing on the podium, Du asked the judge: "Are you sure to give this prize to someone who has never learnt filming and records a film just according to his dream?" The chairman of the judges replied: "This film has really touched our inner hearts."

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, the film "Kora" tells the tale of a young man from Taiwan who journeys to Tibet by bicycle. The film depicts the beautiful scenery along side the Yunnan-Tibet borders starting from Lijiang to Lhasa.

The film was screened nationwide on October 22. (Editor:Lynn)
