HOPE (Xīwàng) 

Documentary Short

The film interviews seven people from very different walks of life but all found in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China. I found hope to be a very ambigious word that is hard to pinpoint the definition so I set out to find out what these seven people had put their hope in and what they believe the definition to be.
