“Apart” is a story about how a father and son’s relationship evolves as time goes on. Movie critic Jakie Lesson has commented that “We can see our own selves from the story, as when we are young, the role of ‘father’ means ‘someone who is far above us.’ As time goes on, we find the role of ‘father’ still ‘superior.’ We sometimes wish to keep it that way, until we need to become the warrior of the family ourselves.”
“Last Piece of the Fallen Leaf” is also appreciated by film critics and received the “Best Short Narrative Film” award at Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival. “When we view students who are in school, we presume their sky is baby blue, as their life is mostly just about studying and having fun,” said movie critic Sammen Chang. “However, when we recognize the severe effects that bullying has on people’s souls, we start to consider how to understand the meaning of ‘being a child,’ and this movie provides us with some valuable answers.”
“Mountain” has received SEVENTEEN movie awards from distinguished international film festival committees. “The movie ‘Mountain’ is my favorite because it reflects humanity. I believe producer Jiarui picked a winning storyline when she chose to make this movie,” said movie maker Trevor Cross.
As a producer, Jiarui Guo is still on her way to exploring her artistic potential, while staying true to her feminist ideals and sending positive messages to the world.
