Funded by the Beijing Normal University and the Academy for International Communication of Chinese Culture, I traveled to Guangxi in South China to make a 12 minute documentary on the Longevity Village of Bama.
Duration: 12 mins | Language: Mandarin
‘Silver Holiday’ is a glimpse into the growing phenomenon of health tourists visiting the region of Bama in the hope of adding a few more years to their lives. Chen Guo and his wife, both in their 80s, take us through the place they now call home, while sharing with us the little details of their life together and the simple things that bring them happiness.
