On Oct 28, The Wings of Songs, a film to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the People's Republic of China, premiered at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

Made by the Publicity Department of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and Tianshan Film Studio, the film tells the story of three young people who insist on pursuing their musical dreams. They embark on a journey to travel to many places in Xinjiang to collect folk songs and experience local life.
