Courthouse on the Horseback Still


On a winding mountain road in the northwest Yunnan, a roving court house is on its way. This disparate group consists of Feng, a retiring judge; Madam Yang, an ethnic Mosuo woman who is the soon-departing secretary; Luo, an ethnic Yi undergraduate who is working in the countryside for the first time; as well as an old horse. Passing through fortified hill villages and marshes, they have solved disputes for different tribes, encountered accidents and even lost their national emblem.

The undergraduate slips away after a disagreement with the team, but Feng continues his lonely journey into the sunset. The film accurately restores the indigenous ethos of the Pumi, Nakhi and Yi ethnic groups. The audience will also come to realize that it takes a long time and much effort for conflicts between social customs and the law to be overcome.
