China’s 3 Dreams

中國三個夢

 

Language: Chinese  

Country: China  

Director: Nick Torrens

http://hongkongworldinternationalfilmfestival.com/China%27s3Dreams  

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qK467iy_-K0

Trailer: https://vimeo.com/75835549

Synopsis:

From a thousand year old village in southwest China, a young woman named LEI searches for a meaningful existence. This leads her deep into China’s hidden history - a fractured line that runs just beneath the surface of contemporary life.  LEI discovers that her generation’s images of their country’s history are false…

Confused by the expurgated history they learned at school and the silence of their grandparents, China’s young people are making their way with three new dreams to guide them: the dream of the present, to make China rich and powerful, the dream of the future, to find a better life; and the almost-impossible dream of the past, the dream of meaningful existence.

China’s 3Dreams takes us deep inside the present dilemmas and dreams of China’s people - without mediation from Western presenters or narrators. Featuring rare archive and extraordinary testimony from former Red Guards and Rebels, here is a powerful parable of China in the twenty-first century.
