Zhang Yimou's capital movie

CHINESE director Zhang Yimou has finished filming a five-minute movie to be played in the Beijing Pavilion at the World Expo 2010 about a foreign tourist's one-day visit in Beijing, a senior Expo organizer of the capital city said today as construction and outfitting finished in the pavilion.

The film is under final editing and will be shown in a 50-seat theater in the pavilion for testing early next week, said Xu Yuwei, vice chairman of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Beijing Sub-Council.

The movie will highlight many different sounds that the traveler hears in the city, including Beijing accents and Peking Opera. It will be played every 12 minutes as a highlight of the pavilion.

The 600-square-meter pavilion in the joint-provincial building will mainly showcase the city's holding of 2008 Beijing Olympics and the ceremony at the 60th anniversary of People's Republic of China in last October by videos and exhibits with the theme of "Charming Capital."

The pavilion can transform its structure into four iconic city buildings - the Temple of Heaven, the National Aquatics Center better known as the Water Cube, the Bird's Nest and National Grand Theater. Transformation of each form needs about 10 seconds.
