This is a visual story set in Beijing, China. The city's population swells at an enormous population of 20 million inhabitants, working together to bring China into the 21st century. The scenes pan across historical human achievements like ancient Forbidden City, to modern Olympic Park, to the down-to-earth street food scene where you'll find locals and ex-pats sharing meals together, to university students cycling from class to class, and a city full of young and old in pursuit of a better life for them and country.
I would like to thank Emily Whitehurst who composed this beautiful piece of music for this video.
