While we can only wait for an update on the status of yaogunner-number-one Cui Jian’s feature-length directorial debut, the perennially–almost–finished Blue Bone, we have a big-screen-sized hole that’s partially filled.
There has been talk for a while now about the possibility of a 3D film based on Yaogunner Number One’s 2010/2011 New Years’ Eve and Day concerts. For those two shows, Cui Jian turned the tables on his former employers, the Beijing Symphony Orchestra. Cui had blown the trumpet for the group through most of the 80s, until the Orchestra told him that his extra-curricular pop and rock activities had to stop. Luckily for us all, he chose yaogun, and left the Orchestra before the decade was up.
