SynopsisThe city of Ordos, in the middle of China, was build for a milion people yet remains completely empty. Ordos is not so much a place but a symbol of babylonic hype. But nothing will change - as long as people believe.
"Kangbashi was built to house 2 million people and is still almost entirely vacant – a monument of the dizzying discrepancy between sense and value which the global financial crisis has provided with additional momentum, rather than leading it to collapse. From incredulous establishers and travelling shots of the gloomy ghost town, a haunting cello soundtrack by Hilda Gudnadottir and a narrative text by Michael Ende, Konrad Kästner composes a veritable eye (and ear) opener."
