    簡介

    GIST

    In the last few decades, China has been experiencing tremendous changes in her economy, society and infrastructure. Her leaders dream about revival of the Chinese race: domestically, they want to lead nationals out of poverty towards a reasonable standard of living; internationally, they want to propel the realization of an economic corridor, via both land and sea, and draft a blueprint for a rising power. Leaders have dreams, but what do their subjects dream about?
    Each episode of “China Stories” shows audience around in China by presenting them with the stories of some characters, as well as some images, in the hope that they may understand what the present-day Chinese think, do, and care about.

      Building a Utopia

      In China, to live a better life, you have to be better-off.
      Is there another way?
      Tang Guanhua, contemporary artist, believes so.
      He took the road less travelled by. And that has made all the difference.

      In 2011, Tang closed his profit making design company and founded the “China Self-sufficient Laboratory” in the rural outskirt of Qingdao. For 5 years, Tang and his wife had tried to survive by their own wiles, producing everything from shoes to electricity, giving up prestige job and. The experience strengthened his belief that the more one relies on money, the less independent thinking they can have.

      Now he goes a step further.
      He strives to build a utopia - or in his words, an Intentional Community, the first of its kind in China. On a rural farmland in Fuzhou, Tang and his followers pursued their dream. Having the same visions and values, they want to form a self-sufficient community, sharing skills and talents. It should be environmentally sustainable and it should have its own social structure, education and welfare system. Decisions are to make through deliberation.

      While cities in China are crippled by smog, mercenaries and wealth gaps, is such community an alternative for our future generations?

Two years ago, he watched a shadow play show held by E Wen-wu, an 80 years old Chinese shadow play show artist, in an old cinema. Sen was impressed by the show. He designed to prepare a nationwide shadow play tour for the old artists. However, he finds it is hard to renew people’s interest on traditional culture even he gave up his own silk business and lost 20 thousand RMB to promote the shows.
      Finally, he finds a way out with an unexpected channel—internet crowd-funding platform in China. What will happen when the traditional culture and the new media collide?
