  In the 1980s, Li Xiangen, the company commander of the Triangle Mountain Frontier Defense Company, led a patrol when he was caught in a flood. Li Xiangen was swept away by the rushing river to save his comrades. His wife, Guo Fengrong, rushed to the army with her 2-year-old son, and waited in the place where her husband disappeared. She cried for 3 days and 3 nights without waiting for her husband to return. So she planted a Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica next to the post where her husband was stationed to mourn and raise her young son to grow up alone. In 2010, Guo Fengrong was seriously ill. Before she died, she told her son, "After I die, please scatter my ashes in the Haraha River. I want to be with him forever." In accordance with her last wish, her ashes were scattered into the Haraha River where her husband died, and she stayed with her husband at the border forever. The story of "acacia tree" touched the military families and all walks of life. The film "Watching Acacia" was carefully created under this background. It is a military love feature film that reflects the feelings of the border guards and their love for life and death, and the time span is nearly 40 years.

  Our army is the people’s army and our national defense is the national defense of the whole people; The social status of the army and soldiers will have a profound impact on the army, the country and the nation. "Watching Acacia Tree" closely integrates the two themes of soldiers’ feelings about home and country and faithful love, and is slowly unfolding and interlocking in the way of military wives’ dialogues in different times, eulogizing the noble sentiments of generations of border guards’ selfless dedication and defending the country, so that people can see the greatness of military wives, understand the hardships of military wives, and understand that behind the peaceful country and the people, the years are quiet, it is the hard commitment and selfless dedication of countless military families. The film is touching and touching. "Watching Acacia Tree" sounded the assembly number of caring for national defense, advocating soldiers and respecting military wives in the whole society, played an active role in promoting the mainstream value of admiring heroes and creating a spiritual highland of pursuing dedication, and injected strong impetus and strong warmth into reforming and strengthening the army. After the film was released, it was accompanied by the overall improvement of the sense of responsibility and mission of the soldiers, which was a big country’s army. Member of the All-China Youth Federation, film producer and chief producer warmly said: "Respect is a heartfelt respect, which depends on the individual’s value recognition and the atmosphere of the whole society. In fact, the military professional honor is never just a matter for the army, it is jointly constructed by the state, society, family and individuals ‘ Great Wall of Spirit ’ .

Happily,Paying attention to national defense, caring for soldiers and caring for military families has increasingly become a social consciousness. What we want to express through the film is the maintenance of military honor, the praise of military value and the affirmation of military dedication. Facing the call of the new era, let’s work together to create the scenery of the times that respects military personnel and their families. "

  Wu Enqi, Deputy Director of Propaganda Department of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Party Committee and Director of Film Bureau, delivered a speech at the premiere.

  Shooting a film with the theme of "defending the country and defending the border" is ideological, significant and politically demanding. Thankfully, "Watching Acacia Tree" shows the initial mission and thoughts and sentiments of border guards in defending sovereignty, performing their duties, and selfless dedication with vivid film language, and achieves the effect of rather critical. For example, when Zhang Zhongliang led a patrol, his subordinates advised him not to cross the river because of the water, but he said firmly, "The situation at the border is more complicated. You and Lao Qiu are both recruits and have little experience. Batu and I will explore first, and you will wait. " These details not only show the awe and responsibility of the soldiers on the frontier for every inch of land, but also show the fine tradition of unity, unity and friendship among the officers and men of the People’s Army. After Nuolili was pregnant and gave birth, Zhang Zhongliang’s father complained that "Zhongliang was so outrageous that Lili and her children waited for a full year and didn’t come back", and his father-in-law explained for his son-in-law that "Zhongliang is defending the country, and the border guards are particularly important in this peacetime", which reflected the military families’ concern for national security and their understanding and support for the soldiers guarding the border. Hu Jinlan, the screenwriter of the film, said: "It is difficult to make a good film with the main theme and positive energy theme, especially those with correct political orientation, far-reaching ideological value and strong artistic appeal. What we have to do is to start with the means of artistic expression, abandon indoctrination and preaching, mechanical story expression, and facial hero creation, and pay attention to the spirit of nuance.Let the audience observe the connotation of the film between touching stories and words. "Although there is not too much rendering, the small and simple lens has the power to reach the soul. In addition, the release of the film coincides with the national commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Chinese people’s Volunteer Army’s going abroad to fight, and it is of great significance to carry forward and extend the patriotic and heroic spirit of revolutionary soldiers.

  Watching Acacia Tree is adapted and created according to the true story of Acacia Tree, which happened in Sanjiaoshan post in Inner Mongolia.

  Watching the Acacia Tree tells the true story, expresses the true feelings, and the word "true" beats all over the film. In the simplicity, there is truth everywhere, filled with true feelings, reflecting the sincerity and shining with true knowledge. From script writing, director shooting, actor performance and editing, the film always runs through the whole process with truthfulness, sincerity and true feelings, which is not only the highlight of the film, but also the tears. Yinnan Ding, director and chief producer of the national biographical film, said that the whole film creation lasted nearly two years. In order to restore the real characters, scenes and context of the story of Acacia Tree, it took more than half a year to polish the script, and it was revised more than 50 times from the beginning of creation to the completion of shooting. There was also a sudden car accident during the filming, which forced the creative staff to make a big adjustment to the script two days before the filming, and told the story in the way of "Hongyan passing the book" instead. At the same time, the later stage of the film can be described as a "frame", including special effects production and music creation, all of which strive to restore the real details, which I believe will bring the audience a high degree of visual and auditory recognition. After watching the movie, the reporter felt that the film used prose-poetry-style biographies to express itself, such as flowing water, showing the spirit of sacrifice and dedication of Chinese border guards and their families freely, which made people unconsciously wet their eyes and let more people see that on the long border of China,Generations of simple and lovely border guards stuck there like nails, and they fulfilled their firm vows of defending the country and defending the border with their youth and life. The heroine Nolili’s sentence, "Everyone has an acacia tree in his heart. What about yours?" It is a direct hit to the heart and makes people cry.
