Your Own City
Shot over seven years, the film is a personal story as well as an on-the-ground chronicle of the Chinese Dream. Yana, a young, rural girl who recently arrived in Chongqing, was drawn by the glamour and easy riches of China's historic real estate boom. She chose to pursue an unusual, but promising business career; she opened a “foreigner rental agency” to help real estate companies market their new developments — the infamous ghost towns. When the inevitable happens and the real estate bubble pops, Yana is forced to sell her company and reasses everything she believed in.
