labour camp during the Cultural Revolution and is on a trek to see a key newsreel in a rural village cinema.

Labour camp? Think it should read voluntary educational walled happy, happy place. The technical problem might be the technical terms used. Cultural revolution, destruction of the past and resetting it to year zero. Rural village, unwalled educational facility with mud.
