By 1949, Shanghai had a significant amount of film production experience, talents and material. Accommodating the country's rapid economic development and the improvement of people's artistic aesthetics, Shanghai Film Studio ushered in its spring.
The films "Dream of the Red Chamber" and "Hibiscus Town," which are emotionally driven, also set Shanghai Film Studio apart from other studios.
