Vanishing Dreams

“Vanishing Dreams” explores the cultural pressures China places on youth in regard to owning a house. For newly graduated students, and despite an economic boom, these pressures combined with the lack of job availability make it increasingly hard to live a fulfilling life. Focusing largely on a game designer named Dai Yue, this film conveys a portrait of contemporary Chinese youth and their struggle to achieve the dream of a bigger place to live.
