Synopsis

A version of retirement unlike anything seen in the West – elderly ravers cutting loose to pounding techno, mass maraca troupes prancing in unison… The antics of China’s urban retirees are fascinating. But in a place where social harmony and self-censorship reign supreme, this frenzy of eccentricity and self-proclaimed happiness builds to an unsettling crescendo. The film avoids a journalistic wrapping up of the social, political and environmental realities of China, instead letting the issues bubble and seethe beneath an onslaught of colour and humanity.
