The Qilin




CATALOGUE TEXT
The Chinese seaport of Guangzhou is regarded as one of the centres of the shadow economy. Economic success is usually not long in coming, all is business. For years, people from different African nations have emigrated to Guangzhou to try their luck. This film, whose protagonists must remain anonymous for security reasons, shadowy silhouettes, tells of their experiences.
