The Concrete Revolution

by GUO Xiaolu

la révolution

Part objective documentary, part personal essay, on the surface this film charts the transformation of Beijing. In order to present a modern glossy face to the world, one where shiny new buildings and icons of western consumerism are rapidly built and pushed to the foregroud, the Chinese Governament prefers to hide in the background the hardship of the people construcitng the new image, and that of the disappearing world of its culture-carrying elders.
