Follow Your Heart
As China’s modern society changes from communism to consumerism, a new urban youth movement has emerged with a greater sense of freedom and optimism unknown in their parent’s generation. By highlighting successful and independent artists from China’s national Hip-Hop scene, Duncan Jepson’s film Follow Your Heart illustrates how this globally connected generation of Chinese youth has embraced technology, art, and consumer culture to express individuality in ways that clash with both traditional and modern Chinese values.
