Joan Dupont: Uncensored: Wang’s ‘Shanghai Dreams’

From the International Herald Tribune:

In “Shanghai Dreams” by the Chinese director Wang Xiaoshuai, the focus is on the uprooted lives of a generation that moved from Shanghai in the 1960s to work in the undeveloped Guizhou Province. The Chinese government under Mao, fearing conflict with the Soviet Union, relocated factories inland to make up a “third line of defense.” There, in the remote southwest, these exiles worked in factories and renounced their background and culture – but never their dream of returning home.
