SCREEN : Conrad Clark's Soul Carriage is original in two important ways. Firstly because the 28-year-old British director's debut film is entirely set in south-eastern China , with Chinese actors and dialogue. Secondly because Clark, an anthropology graduate, appears to have immersed himself not only in the language and culture of his chosen setting but in the laconic cine-verite style of certain Chinese Sixth Generation fillmakers. If it weren't for Clark 's name on the credits, this road movie about a construction worker who is given the job of ferrying a dead colleague's body back to his home town could pass for an early Jia Zhangke. VARIETY :Perhaps groundbreakingly, and certainly daringly, 'Soul Carriage' was shot by a debutante English helmer, in Mandarin, in China. …. pic won the Altadis New Director's award at San Sebastian, and could see extensive fest play in Asian territories and elsewhere.
