Co-directed by three renowned Chinese directors, Zhang Yimou, Wang Chaoge and Fan Yue, Impression Lijiang takes place at the foot of southwestern China's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain at 3500 meters in an outdoor theater specifically designed to showcase the mountain which is used as a breathtaking backdrop.
