The Daliang Mountains is an undeveloped rural area in southwestern China known for its poverty and cultural uniqueness. The Daliang Mountains has been able to remain culturally untainted due to its severe lack of transportation and educational resources. In this area lives the Yi people, a Chinese ethnic minority group.
Under the Moonlight (2019) is a music video based on a Yi ethnic poem, “阿莫尼惹”. Sung only in Yi ethnic language, this poem is about mother-daughter relationships in Yi heritage. The story in Under the Moonlight (2019) is a third-person narrative about a girl born in the Daliang Mountains. She visualizes her past growing up in the village. Even though she feels blessed about her roots, she reflects on how she had longed for a better future.
