In collaboration with Smoke Signal Projects
Welcome to Tuanjiehu Park in China’s capital where early each morning a stunning multimedia spectacle takes place performed by the city’s elderly. From gymnastics to disco-dancing, bird training to singing, together they have a hunger for living in their later years. I Want to Grow Old in China highlights the spontaneity, passion, diligence and poetry created in one small piece of Beijing. By following the story of the park’s most interesting figures, the documentary offers an alternative view of growing old — one where longevity meets performance.
