Updated 2017-10-17 10:32:54 Xinhua

An anthology of short films, jointly made by directors from each of the BRICS countries, will be released nationwide in China Thursday.

The feature, named Where Has Time Gone, consists of five parts, each by a different director, said the Chinese director Jia Zhangke in Beijing Monday.

The four directors working alongside Jia were Walter Salles from Brazil, Aleksey Fedorchenko from Russia, Madhur Bhandarkar from India, and Jahmil X.T. Qubeka from South Africa.

In the anthology, Jia's story is about a couple who want a second child. Salles shows the aftermath of a dam collapse. Bhandarkar tells the friendship between an old man and an orphan. Fedorchenko depicts a couple living in a valley. Qubeka sets his part in the future.

"The emotions from all five stories can be shared by anyone in any country," said Jia, adding that the film would be a successful demonstration of the deep communication and cooperation in the film industry among BRICS countries.
