China’s 3Dreams

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 04 August 2014

By AFI Award-winning Director Nick Torrens, this absorbing documentary about the changing face of China is both intriguing and confrontational.

Once China’s ordinary citizens dreamed of a watch, a bicycle and a radio. Today they strive for wealth and a better life, often to the detriment of family and tradition. The generation gap widens as Grandparents are reluctant to speak of their experiences during the Cultural Revolution and grandchildren are only concerned with material gains, saying, “I’d rather cry in a BMW than laugh on a bicycle.”

Nick Torrens’ work has screened at major film festivals and on Australian and international television. His previous films include To Get Rich Is Glorious and The Men Who Conquered China.

12 years in the making, China’s 3Dreams opens the door on the past and questions the present.
