Xi’an News Network reported on the mountain and the donkey cart. The bride held the cloth shoes for her future husband and gestured at the soles of her feet. More than 70 years ago, the young girl with no feet and straight personality appeared on the stage. For six episodes, she never really left her homeland. In fact, Shen Jilan, the protagonist’s prototype “Republic Medal” winner, has stepped on the ground all his life. How did the “her story” in the countryside more than half a century ago span time and space and talk to today’s audience? “Shen Jilan’s Proposal” of “The Merit” ended successfully. The main creative team headed by screenwriter Gong Xiangdong and director Lin Nan solved the problem from the three dimensions of character texture, emotion, and sense of substitution, allowing the audience to understand that Shen Jilan advocated equal pay for men and women for equal work and promoted its writing At the same time, the important achievements of the constitution are also in this working woman who has been rooted in the land throughout his life.

Compared with the first four units that have been broadcasted in “Merchants”, “Shen Jilan’s Proposal” can be said to have started when the characters were in their early days. In 1946, Shen Jilan, an ordinary woman in the old society yearning for a new life, had not yet learned to read words, let alone build merits. The beginning of the unit, the shadow puppet paper-cutting “boarding”, the opening of folk songs, the very characteristic Shanxi folk art navigation, the story starts from an aerial shot, and a welcoming scene brings the audience into the time and space environment stipulated by the story. In terms of environmental space, mountains are connected to mountains, and ditches are connected to ditch. Yellow mud walls, loess roads, smoky stone facades, and building facades exposed with mottled weeds are all poor environments of that era. The crew’s pursuit of texture is also prominently reflected in the characters’ costume makeup and behavior details. As a result of years of grind with the earth and ears, everyone’s patch-attached clothes are almost stained with earthy soil; due to the sun and lack of water, chapped lips and dark complexion become the common appearance of villagers; due to lack of material life, a bowl of millet is enough. Can be a great happiness. Whether working in the fields or spinning flowers in the yard, the tricks of Da Lanzi and the sisters fit the image of rural women. In reality, NPC deputy Shen Jilan is the child of the people and the land. She loves the people of Xigou Village and Xigou Village.

The image of Dalanzi portrayed in “Shen Jilan’s Proposal” can stand up because of her deep and stable foundation. There is a plot in the play. The secretary of the county comes to Shen Jilan and asks the second eldest father at the village head. After a while, the latter suddenly realizes that “You are talking about our big Lanzi”. Although it is a cutscene, it reflects the deep nostalgia between Shen Jilan and the people of Xigou Village. In “Shen Jilan’s Proposal”, the main creator used Shen Jilan’s emotional interaction and collision with the surrounding characters to write her courage, insight, and courage into reason. As a TV series in which acclaimed heroes made important contributions to the cause of equality between men and women in New China, “Shen Jilan’s Proposal” has two quite special characters: Wai Wai and Captain Li. Wai Wai is a character that is not very popular in Xigou Village. He is impoverished and inactive. Apart from wandering around the village, he is quarreling with the big mouth and other women. His appearance was as if he was squatting on the stone mill while watching the excitement and pulling the corn in the bowl, looking like nothing to do. The script puts great kindness in this role. Because he wanted to eat a bite of millet, Weiwei applied to join the spinning group that “men look down upon”. There was an uproar, but Shen Jilan gave a final word, saying that men and women are equal, then the male compatriots can also join the All-One Detachment of Women’s spinning group. This plot is undoubtedly of profound significance when examined in the current atmosphere of the era of “true gender equality”.

Captain Li, played by Zuo Xiaoqing, is a friend and teacher to Shen Jilan in the play. For the villagers of Xigou Village who entered the new China from the old society, Captain Li represents a new atmosphere of the times. In her, she has the consciousness of independent women, the awareness of popularization of science education, and the consciousness of hard work. Her arrival, or the birth of New China, strengthened Shen Jilan’s confidence in driving more women to stand up straight and to seek women’s labor liberation in a new society where “men and women are the same”.Zeng Shixiang, an all-media reporter of Xi’an Press
