A Chinese filmmaker has announced that his soon-to-be-released film, “Moses on the Plain,” has been renamed “Fire on the Plain,” which was done to avoid offending China’s communist government because of its biblical name.

The film’s director, Zhang Ji, who is also a cinematographer, made the announcement at the Beijing International Film Festival last week, Radio Free Asia reported.

When reporters asked why the name of his film, which is scheduled to be in theaters in December, was changed, Zhang said, “In this movie, we use a lot of fire as an element.
