About the Film

Directed by Xuebo Wang, Knife in the Clear Water tells the story of the Hui minority. Ma Zishan (Yang Shengcang) is an ageing Muslim farmer, part of the Hui minority. Forty days after his wife dies, Ma must perform a memorial service and invite his village neighbours to a feast. He and his adult son make the difficult decision to sacrifice their ageing cow for the service, but the cow soon stops eating and drinking, as if in anticipation of its slaughter. Old Ma tenderly cares for the animal, washing it and attempting to feed it; perhaps he sees something of himself in the loyal old beast. Both of them are approaching the end of their natural lifespans, as is the hardscrabble way of life that characterizes their village.​
