Still Film A New Era

A New Era

Synopsis

In 2008, local authorities evict 2,000 villagers from Guangzhou, a river island in Southern China to build a presumed Ecological Parc. In spite of the demolition of their houses and police pressure, a handful of inhabitants return to the island. For 7 years, Boris films their battle to save their ancestral land, from the ruins of the village where nature is slowly reasserting itself, to the worksites of the megacity which inexorably advances towards them. Will they share the same fate of 5 billions of Chinese peasants expropriated yearly?
