I’m curious about where the movie An Elephant Sitting Still (2018) was made. Do you know in which Chinese city was the movie filmed?

  • Probably Shijiazhuang. You should be able to google some architectural features that have been represented in the film.

According to the German site Deutschlandfunk the movie was filmed in the Hebei province.

“Der Film ist in Hebei gedreht, in der Nachbarprovinz von Peking.”

In English that translates as:

“The film is shot in Hebei, in the neighbouring province of Beijing.”

The movie is also mentioned in the Wikipedia article for for Jingxing County:

“The 2018 film An Elephant Sitting Still was filmed in Jingxing County.”
