CHINA 94 MIN
In 2016, the last textile weaving factory from the communist era in North-West China was demolished. Weaving follows two textile worker families during the five year demolition process as they struggle to adapt to outside change while trying to keep their families intact. Where old and new social values collide, their story allows us to take a closer look inside China's changing family dynamic in an increasingly materialistic and complex society.
Documentary filmmaker from Xi’an, China. He has directed three independent feature documentaries focusing on China's social changes through the eyes of the younger generation.
