People’s Park is a 75-minute single shot documentary that immerses viewers in an unbroken journey through a famous urban park in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.

Our take

Shot entirely in one take, this experimental documentary from Harvard’s groundbreaking Sensory Ethnography Lab views a public park as a prismatic microcosm of self-expressions in contemporary China. More than an ethnographic snapshot, the film is a sensory exploration of cinematic time and space.
