The World (世界)

The World (世界)

A cohort of workers play within Beijing’s World Park, their dramas, romances and comradery set between miniatures of the world’s great monuments. Their disenfranchised labour is set against a magical-realist bombast, this fakery an enticing allegory for a capitalist world. Jia’s first release with approval of the Chinese Film Bureau.
