The Qiang ethnic minority people of Yanwo Village in Songpinggou Township in Sichuan Province used video cameras to record the traditional ceremony of  Zhuan Shan. During this ceremony the villagers offer sacrifices to the mountain god and to their ancestors to pray for their blessings. The ceremony is marked by lively singing and dancing. The video also features other aspects of the Qiang culture. The footage was edited into four season-themed chapters.
