Everyone has a story. “One Billion Stories” is a video series mapping the people in Shanghai you pass by everyday, but don’t really get to know. We have many daily and weekly interactions with the same people in the city that don't go further than a simple hi or thank you. In the videos, these people tell the viewer about their lives, their dreams, their past and their philosophy. The series aims to open a discussion about how we interact with the people in the city. One Billion Stories challenges the viewer to strike a deeper conversation with those that are not strangers, but not friends either.
