Platform is a historical dramatic film directed by Zhang Ke Jia that follows a troupe of performers known as the Peasant Culture Group from Fenyang in the Shanxi province of China. A relatively poor theater lit by a single light bulb, they often reflect the slow change of the social climate of 1980s China as the control of Mao Zedong lessens with the introduction of the Western influence. As their freedom becomes easier to obtain, the group turns into the All-Star Rock and Breakdance Electronic Band comprised of rebellious Cui Minliang (Wang Hong-wei), sullen Zhang Jun (Liang Jing-dong), shy Ruijuan (Zhao Tao), and daring Zhong Pin (Yang Tiang-yi). Platform follows the intricacies of the professional and personal relationships of the quartet as they move against the conservative older cultural mindset to the new, such as non-married cohabitation, birth control, and Western ideals. A multi-nominated and awarded film, Platform is based on the popular song about waiting at a railway platform.
