11 Out of 1.3 Billion; Football in China (release 2019)

11 Out of 1.3 Billion; Football in China

See also: football-in-china.com Why is China, with 1.3 billion people and a great reputation in sports, not able to form a good national football team? 11 out of 1.3 Billion; Football in China will show the challenges of Chinese football by following six year old Kevin. He is talented and crazy about football.

 

Kevin’s dad is an exception to the Chinese social rules because he supports him to go to a special primary football school. By sacrificing his own career and spend every free hour on Kevin’s training he may finally fulfill his own childhood dream.

Along the way we meet players, coaches, fans and specialists who all have their own ideas about Chinese football and Kevin’s chances to ever play in a glorious Chinese team. Will Kevin fulfill his dad’s childhood dream and be part of a better Chinese football future?

Chinese football

There is certainly a will to win in Chinese football. Large sums of money are spent on foreign football professionals like Drogba and coach Francesco Lippi. David Beckham is now even hired as “image ambassador” for Chinese football. When he visited Shanghai seven people got injured just trying to get a glimpse of him, proving football is popular in China.

But is attracting foreign talent enough to raise the general level of football? Can the art of football be copied, like so many other things in China? Why do you hardly see any young kids kick a ball in the streets between the new high-rises? What about the match-fixing scandals in the past, and what does ‘our man in China’ Arie Haan think of it?

Through some famous and some less famous players, coaches and fans a surprising image if China as football country is drawn. Interviews are illustrated with footage from the Chinese football practice. The film is informative and entertaining. 11 Out of 1.3 Billion: Football in China is the first film about football in China and is full of ambition, enthusiasm and surprises.

A must see for Football fans and people interested in Chinese culture alike. Check www.football-in-china.com for even more information!

Urbanisation in China; happiness is seen everywhere

Urbanisation in China; Happiness is seen everywhere

* Full version now available online!

A Journey of Wonder in Shanghai
In China urbanisation is at full pace. New neighborhoods and cities emerge faster than ever before. The inhabitants, often coming from small villages or demolished areas in the city centres, find a new social context in the new cities. The apartments are better than what they were used to, but do they feel at home there? Do the new cities meet their inhabitants’ expectations?

The ‘new rich’ can afford to buy a house in a new themed suburb. But the city centres of Thames Town or Holland Village look empty. These areas seem to be used mainly by frantic newlyweds searching the perfect surrounding for their wedding pictures.

Urbanisation In China: Happiness Is Seen Everywhere provides a background and context for the Chinese urbanisation and specifically lets the inhabitants speak. It is not a romantic picture of pretty old houses and alleys, but shows real situations and open often surprising views in modern China.

  • A jury of film critics and architects have awarded the film as “Best Documentary” at “The International Istanbul Architecture And Urbanism Film Festival” 2011. (translated as Çin’de kentleşme: Mutluluk Her Yerde). The prize consists of a statue and a cash prize of 4000 euro.
  • Screened on film festivals in (a.o.) Shanghai, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Seoul and the Netherlands.
