Aroview: Chinese crime drama set in the brutal world of illegal coal mining.

Follows two struggling coal miners who are running a side hustle in which they convince new mining recruits to pose as their relatives, then murder them and extort compensation money from management. An uncompromising portrait of the dark side of the Chinese economy from the director of BLIND MOUNTAIN, which pairs black and bitter humour with biting Hitchcockian suspense. Unsurprisingly banned in China.
