Each of China’s 260 million migrant workers has a story. This is Wanghao’s.

Currently, China is home to some 260 million migrant workers – all largely hidden from view because they do ‘the dirty, heavy work the public doesn’t see’. Chinese Dreamer follows the 18-year-old Wanghao as he travels from his rural farm to Beijing to help support his struggling family. Wanghao dreams of a better life, but with little education and few skills, he struggles to envision something other than difficult, thankless times ahead.

Directors: Sharron Lovell, Tom Wang
