From the Washington Post (link):
There are many places in the world where you might expect to encounter Lu Chuan. Were the scholarly looking, bespectacled Lu to instruct you on economics from behind a university lectern, you would think it appropriate.
Here is where you definitely do not expect to encounter him: on a wind-swept Tibetan plain a mile in the sky, hammered by blizzards and extreme cold, where gunfights and massacres happen frequently, death is around all the time and always ugly, and the flies and buzzards are the only happy campers.
Yet, that is where Lu indeed prevailed. He went, he saw, he conquered; most important of all, he returned from western China’s forbidding frontier with a taut, tough little film called “Mountain Patrol: Kekexili,” about the to-the-death struggle between poachers and rangers. The issue between them: the survival of the rapidly thinning herds of Tibetan antelope.
