Shouting 1




We want to shout out our inner voice, but have you heard it? Or are all our shoutings in vain?
Shot in Wuhan, Hubei. Wuhan is a megacity just like Beijing and Shanghai, but its economy is less developed compared with those of Beijing and Shanghai.
Rapid urbanization in China results in a massive real estate industry. It seems that every family is mad about housing: divorces, fake marriages, hukou relocation, quarrels and hatred between brothers and various other strange phenomena shroud China. For Chinese citizens, all such strange things have become normal. To create income, the government destroys rice paddies, fills lakes, breaks down ancient buildings, destroys forests....All our memories are lost, and all of us are mad. What will our children do? What such rapid urbanization will bring to our children, a concrete jungle?
