Hu Jinyan | Documentary | 97min | 2016 | China
The movie records the work and life of workers in a factory that produces the Christmas decorations. In a smelly factory, the dust floats and the colorful loops shine. Day and Night, the workers create beautiful dreamy stories for kids all around the world. However, they don’t even know what Christmas is, or where. Every Christmas tree leaf with golden powder on it… all just mean the very tiny increase of the number on their salary account book.
When the pink ‘decorated snowflake’ floats around the factory, it indicates the arrival of Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve, the ‘mirage’ all over the world shows a scene of visual spectacle and the happiness seems to overflow the planet. However, the real Father Christmas starts to step on his long, long way home at that time…
