Shot from 1993-1994 in the villages of Eastern and Southern China, linked in common lore to the remote origins of China’s civilizations, the film offers a journey into the wealth of China’s traditional architecture while exploring the hinterlands of self and others in their encounter. A site of creativity also highly valued as a guiding criterion in ethics and politics, harmony has played an important role in the lives of Chinese people since ancient times. The film addresses the process of “harmonizing” rural China due to the country’s Great Uprooting, and seeks to engage the viewer further by asking: What exactly is disappearing? And how?
