About this submission
Night Shift is a visual meditation on memory and an exploration of my feelings of disbelief towards how much my birthplace of Jinan has changed upon visiting the city again in my teenage years.
It was only at night when the city lit up, did it feel truly alive. I knew that this was a result of the years of air pollution that nearly every city in China has endured, yet I could not help but be enthralled by it. The film captures an extreme cityscape that no longer exists as China has ramped up efforts to reduce air pollution.
