On the morning of January 25, 2019, Apple and director Jia Zhangke co-produced One Barrel at the Apple Store premiere in Wangfujing, Beijing.
Unlike "Three Minutes" from last year's "Punctuation," this year's short film chose the "hot" route, the topic is an "integral home flavor," followed by a high resolution lens on the iPhone XS, a "bucket of the city's journey in the city. "This is the first time that director Jia Zhangke uses the iPhone XS as the primary camera, so she shares two video capture techniques using the iPhone XS so that everyone can learn to use the iPhone XS for to shoot life.
The short film tells a young man who returned to work from his hometown after the spring festival, and before his departure his mother gave him a plastic bucket, after returning to his home town, discovered that the bucket was filled with mother's sand . Carefully packed eggs. Director Jia Zhangke aims to use a bucket to bring love to his family, introducing everyone with a "home-made" taste that can not be divided.
"Exciting to shoot with iPhone XS"
About this collaboration with Apple, Jia Dao said the most appealing for him is two points: one is to shoot everyone with a cellphone, he has worked on movies for 20 years and never used a cell phone to shoot. In the noise and vanity of the Spring Festival. Jia Jungke says that in the past he went south of the Yangtze River near the Spring Festival and has often passed such a crowd into the train, the steamer and the long-distance bus. They are in a hurry to go home, or they are in a hurry to come home from home, always breaking a bucket. IPhone XS plus this bucket is the most exciting for Jia Zhangke.

There were many discussions about the lens of director Jia Jangke. Adding an iPhone XS also made the lens more likely. Jia Zhangke said on the scene that shooting the iPhone XS could be "going to the sky".
