Shou Wang, a short documentary by videographers from Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province, was showcased at the 28th National Photographic Art Exhibition, which was held in the county-level city of Linhai from July 7 to 12.

Established in 1957, the National Photographic Art Exhibition is the oldest, most influential and largest national photography exhibition held by the China Photographers Association. This year's edition featured 298 works from categories such as documentary, art, creativity, business and multimedia. 

Shou Wang, the only multimedia work from Taizhou that was exhibited at the event, is an episode from a trilogy filmed by the crew that shows how people spent this year's Spring Festival holiday during the epidemic, according to Hu Jun, director and producer of the documentary.

The video features interviews of five children from two villages in Xianju county whose parents were not able to return home to spend the holiday due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

The short clip went viral online after being uploaded during the Spring Festival holiday.

Hu Jun has filmed 186 short videos that offer a kaleidoscope of people and stories in Taizhou to date.
