The animated film Planting Pears, created in 2016 by students at the School of Film and Animation of the China Academy of Art, was selected by the New Chitose Airport International Animation Festival 2017 in Japan and the Global International Silent Film Festival 2017 in the United States.

It is adapted from the story Liao Zhai Zhi Yi, a collection of fantastical tales by Pu Songling of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and tells of a series of humorous events that occur after a fox fairy and pear seller meet on a road, encouraging people to be generous and help those in need.
