China's first film shot in the Antarctic premieres in Shanghai

Director Wu Youyin and Taiwan actor Mark Chao, who plays an entrepreneur in the movie, interacted with local audiences during the film's Shanghai premiere.

New romance film “Till the End of the World,” which is China’s first to be shot in the Antarctic, held a premiere for around 1,000 people at the Shanghai Film Art Center on Monday. 

Director Wu Youyin and Taiwan actor Mark Chao, who plays an entrepreneur in the movie, interacted with local audiences after the screening. 

Wu, formerly a member of China’s 27th and 28th Antarctic expeditions, said that it has long been his dream to shoot a tragicomedy set in extreme conditions. 

The cast and crew overcame lots of difficulties to make the movie, he added.

Though actor Chao suffered snow blindness during shooting, he told movie buffs that it was a rewarding and memorable experience.

“Till the End of the World” will hit cinemas across China on February 2.
