Film about visionary musicians begins production

By Cao Chen


A Miracle Band, which is about six visually impaired musicians, started filming in Shanghai last month.


The film's lead character is Nie Ming, a young man who forms a band and overcomes a series of challenges before impressing audiences.


The character is based on Han Xingchen, the lead singer of a band that was formed in 2018.

The band, Bukaopu (Men of Straw), is part of the Meiai Ronghe art development center, a charity institution which receives support from several entities, such as the city's civil affairs bureau, the culture and tourism bureau in Huangpu district and the No 18 nonprofit organization park, where the center is located.


Zhou Zifeng, an electroacoustic musician, has been the band's mentor for the past few years.


The film's story is based on the experiences of band members. Many actually star in the film. Han plays the owner of a massage parlor who joins the band.
