Xinjiang, Xinjiang! / 新疆,新疆!
Directed by Zhang Zhi-tuo, 2008 (73mins, English subtitles)

In western China, every year in late August, millions of migrant workers flood into Xinjiang, where they are from a single name - agricultural laborers. This film follows a group of them from the capital of Ning County, Gansu. It offers a group portrait of the seasonally flowing narrative, showing a large labor force unprecedented in human history. In the process, it also displays the living conditions and a means of survival for contemporary Chinese farmers and a series of associated social problems.
