The inspiring, re-telling of Brother Guo Jian Nan, who embarks on a journey of a lifetime in western Guangdong, dedicating himself to lifting Chinese villagers out of poverty. After his passing, the “forever Brother Nan” story is still living in the LiTan villagers’ hearts, Guo Jian Nan is truly an everyday hero and everybody’s dream.

Los Angeles, CA – August 7, 2018 –

Poverty was their past; Guo Jian Nan gave them a future.

Recently awarded as Cultural Ambassadors of Guangzhou in the New Era, TriCoast Entertainment’s Marcy Levitas Hamilton & Strathford Hamilton are thrilled to announce the U.S. release of emerging Chinese filmmaker, Zheng Hua’s deeply touching biopic, EVERYDAY HERO, based on the inspiring and true story of Guo Jian Nan. EVERYDAY HERO (aka Nan Ge, Southern Brothers)will be available on U.S. online video platforms on August 28th.

As a cinematic sensation produced by and starring Sun Hong Tao, EVERYDAY HERO recounts the true story of Brother Guo Jian Nan, the selfless individual who leaves his occupation at Heavy Industries Group to journey to western Guangdong, where he develops infrastructure for the impoverished and rural LiTan villagers. During Guo Jian Nan’s time in western Guangdong, he encounters the heartwarming villagers of LiTan, creating more than an adventure of a lifetime, but one that would change a village forever.

“Very touching, it is about the commonality of human beings. Not only China, but in any corner of the world, there may be such a story,” wrote the Southern Metropolis Daily.

Within nearly two years, Guo Jian Nan is able to bring the LiTan Village back to life, overcoming poverty and achieving prosperity for a better reality. He selflessly dedicated himself to the village’s “precise poverty alleviation” by repairing the windows of broken schools, installing tap water, improving roads and transportation and even providing pension insurance for the elderly people in need. But, as the town and people re-build, Guo Jian Nan’s health begins to deteriorate, suffering a sudden heart attack due to overwork. After spending a lifetime helping others, can Brother Guo Jian Nan help himself?

The core plot of Hua’s EVERYDAY HERO “reflects the common good feelings of human beings, the performance of the beautiful South Guangdong village [and] the actors and actresses [are] outstanding,” continued the Southern Metropolis Daily.

Originally released in China, TriCoast Worldwide recently brought EVERYDAY HERO to the 2018 Cannes International Film festival for the film’s international signing and exclusive screening, reported ScreenDaily exclusively. “More leaders like Mr. Guo and more films like this are needed to support the poverty reduction work,” remarked Wang Yang, Standing Committee of the Political Bureau and former Vice Premier of the State Council of China.

As the “forever Brother Nan” living in the LiTan villagers’ hearts, explore and discover the wondrous efforts of selflessness, dedication and adventure that change a village forever with TriCoast Entertainment’s exclusive U.S. release of EVERYDAY HERO, coming to online digital platforms August 28th.
