China, Canada Teaming for Indie Biopic

Vancouver-based Rare Earth Media and Beijing-based Ray Production have partnered to make a movie about true-life Canadian doctor and Chinese cultural hero Norman Bethune, to be structured as a C$30 million China-Canada co-production. The film will be unveiled at the Hong Kong International Film & TV Market (FILMART). Rare Earth Media and Ray Production will be part of a Canadian film industry trade mission to China in April to promote the film, led by federal Heritage Minister Melanie Joly. Canada is looking to target the Chinese moviegoing market before it overtakes North America as the largest theatrical film market in the world sometime in the next several years.
