The Land of Many Palaces

Rated NR

In Ordos, China, thousands of farmers are being relocated into a new city under a government plan to modernize the region. This documentary follows a government official whose job is to convince these farmers that their lives will be better off in the city, and a farmer in one of the last remaining villages in the region who is pressured to move. The film explores a process that will take shape on an enormous scale across China, since the central government announced plans to relocate 250,000,000 farmers to cities across the nation, over the next 20 years.
