Synopsis

Hutong di Beijing mempunyai atmosfer spesial bagiku. Walaupun aku keturunan Cina yang tak pernah tinggal di Cina, aku menemukan kecocokan dengan tempat ini. Setelah berkelana sebagai orang asing, aku membayangkan mitos-mitos menjadi hidup di Hutong. Meskipun bangunan dan artefak menghilang ditelan modernitas, mitos tetap hidup dan memelihara memori kolektif kami.

The Hutongs in Beijing contain a special atmosphere for me. As an overseas Chinese who has never lived in China, I nevertheless found a way to identify with these places. After the experience of wandering around them as a foreigner, I imagine some myths coming alive in the Hutongs. Even though buildings and artifacts disappear in the face of modernity, myths remain and preserve our collective memory.
