Castles, croquet and kilts: on the tour bus from China through the photo ops of Britain
Insightful and wryly observed, the British director Matt Hopkins’s short documentary Visions of Albion joins a group of Chinese tourists as they experience some of the UK’s most celebrated sights, including Buckingham Palace in London, the River Cam in Cambridge, and the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. As the group takes pictures and learns some fleeting facts at each location, two overlapping questions linger just below the surface: what does a country’s presentation to visitors say about that country? And what can tourist attractions reveal about a country’s day-to-day reality and history?
