Transplanted city

A powerfully strange video, this documents one of several European "replica" cities constructed in mainland China in what seems to be both a development frenzy and an odd impulse to "own" iconic cultural locations. As the film plays out, the full extent of the folly is revealed in what is a bleak and oddly alien environment. There is something here of the final scenes of Kubrick's 2001 as, what little population there is, seem perplexed and ill at ease in this hopelessly unhelpful landscape.
