Untitled PRC Project

UNTITLED PRC PROJECT is an impressionistic portrait of the evolving nature of labor, aspiration and consumerism in the People’s Republic of China. With a cinematic lens, we question what living the so-called “Chinese Dream” actually looks like today, through an exploration of the pursuit of wealth and the paradox of progress.
