We’re travelling from Paris to Venice without leaving China. This 360° film explores the fascinating reality of “fake cities” and allows us access to a world of imitation where the boundaries between original, fake, real and virtual are blurred. Locals guide us through almost empty cityscapes that serve as projection screens for a wholly different culture.

Lars Rummel, Marie Hinkelmann
