Beijing 2022, the official film of last year's Winter Olympic Games, revisits some of the cherished moments of top athletes, such as snowboarder Su Yiming. CHINA DAILY

Film chronicles efforts of athletes and support staff alike as it reveals the indomitable spirit of winter event, Xu Fan reports.

During the Beijing Winter Olympics last year, Japanese figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu held a news conference a few days after missing the podium for the men's singles free skate competition, taking fourth place.

Sitting alone behind a long, white table, the sports star faced a group of reporters taking photos or videos of him. Hanyu held his hands behind his back, interlocked his fingers and stirred them.

The scene was captured from an unusual angle for the documentary, Beijing 2022, officially produced for the Winter Olympic Games.

Debuting as the opener for the 13th Beijing International Film Festival, which ran from April 22-29, the feature promises to take audiences to revisit the grand competition. It went on screen domestically on Friday.
