Image is of the 巫峽 Shamaness Gorge viewed from 神女峰 Shennufeng, Soceress Pleak.

The Sanxia, as known in history, is no more. The gigantic Gezhouba Dam has flooded this gorge rich in Chinese culture and history.

The movie 三峽好人 Sanxia Haoren directed by Zhang Kejia, was shot on location in Fengjie during the time the old town was being demolished to make way for the flood caused by the Gezhouba Dam. It is a poignant story of life's renewal amid the ruins. It is the nearest thing to having been there oneself, and for those of us who were there it brings back the sounds and sights that still linger in our minds.
