ON CHINA GOLD RUSH 谈《东方淘金》
ON CHINA GOLD RUSH (52min, 2000)
China Gold Rush is actually my first documentary talking about China,
a changing China, from the perspectives of foreigners living in China.
I actually had six sections of the changing China.
I had internet explosion, punk rocking, interracial marriage
Business and WTO and historical review of China,misunderstanding
And of course you have me walking around in Beijing or across China
as if seeking an answer to a question.
Because I found lot of foreigners didn’t quite understand China at that time
in early 2000, or not even 2000.
I did a lot of PR working in United States before I was afull-time filmmaker.
I felt there is great room for illumination of truth,
or at least providing information for the English speaking audience.
So I went back to China almost after sixteen years of absence.
So for me it’s a rediscovery of my home
China Gold Rush is going like a unfolding cavern,
It provides horizontal China.
My later film is vertical going deeper.
