DERNIERS JOURS A SHIBATI

France . 2019

The oldest district of the immense town of Chongquig, is about to be demolished and its inhabitants re-housed. The film maker befriends the young Zhou Hong, a little prince of the district’s lively streets and Madam Xue Lian, the extraordinary fairy godmother to the migrant workers who are the last witnesses of a disappearing world. In this chronicle of foretold destruction, the film maker takes to the winding, run-down streets of  Shibati to show us what is about to disappear forever. Zhou Hong and Xue Lian must leave to live in one of the soulless tower blocks in a distant suburb.
