A film that records stories of the late village official Huang Wenxiu, who died in a flash flood at the age of 30, is about to be on show throughout the nation.

Huang dedicated her life to poverty alleviation in South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region and was awarded the title "role model of the times" by the central government. 

After graduating from Beijing Normal University in 2016, Huang returned to her hometown of Baise in Guangxi and served as a grassroots official.

Since March 2018, she had been leading poverty alleviation efforts in Baini village, Leye county, as the village's Party chief. A total of 418 villagers were lifted out of poverty thanks to her efforts.

Huang died in a rain-triggered flash flood on June 17, 2019, while returning from the city of Baise to Leye county.
