: metamigranten: An Elephant Sitting Still
An Elephant Sitting Still (Chinese: ??????) is a 2018 Chinese film written, directed and edited by Hu Bo. The first and last film of the novelist-turned-director Hu, who committed suicide soon after finishing his film on 12 October 2017 at the age of 29, it is based on a story with the same title from his 2017 novel Huge Crack.
In the northern Chinese city of Manzhouli, it is said that there is an elephant that simply sits still and ignores the world. Manzhouli becomes an obsession for the protagonists of the film, a longed-for escape from the downward spiral in which they find themselves (the film is set in Jingxing County, Hebei province).

Despite lacking a bachelor's degree, Erikson served as a professor at prominent institutions, including Harvard, University of California (UC Berkeley), and Yale.
