China

"Articles can be true and fake, but they don’t vary from the old to the new ones.” Realistic and impressionistic shootings are combined together in this film. The emphasis is the conceptive explanation of what happens in China’s past, present and future. I would like to transfer the female figure into a concept of humanity, showing the influence left on the northeast China by the times and discussing the concept of existence.
