City of Rock is a New Rock’n’Roll Movie from China

Thanks to a brutally oppressive Communist period that lasted decades, China was a little late to the rock’n’roll. But trust me, they’re catching up. Danny forwards this trailer for City of Rock which is described like this:

Da Peng’s (Pancake Man aka Jiang Bing Man) highly anticipated sophomore film, CITY OF ROCK, follows Hu Liang, a young man from a small town in China, who wants to protect the town’s treasured Rock Park from redevelopment by a corporate real estate agent. Hoping to save the park by organizing a charity rock concert, he partners with music agent Cheng Gong. But when he’s offered a large payout to cancel the concert, will Hu Liang choose money or will he save the beloved town park?

There’s a trailer, of course. Click on the image to see it.
