CHINA GOLD RUSH  (2000. 52min)   Synopsis

Against the back drop of millennial fervor, filmmaker Joanne Cheng journeys from Times Square to Tiananmen Square seeking a definition of China on the eve of the twenty-first century. Interviewing Internet surfers, business executives, avant-garde artists, punk rockers, “China Watchers” and Westerners living in China, she reveals a society in transitional mode as it moves rapidly towards modernity.

Themes explored include “Biggest changes & Internet”; “Doing business & WTO”; “Misconception & media”; “interracial love & marriage”, “Tradition & history”; “Punk music & youth”; “Children and world’s future”.

CHINA GOLD RUSH is perhaps one of the first cinematic depictions of millennial China and its relationship with the west in the 21st century. It challenges stereotypes and misconceptions and provides valuable insights into one of the most dynamic and exciting cultures in the world today.
