Beating hearts (working title)

The twins Aleque and Issay are three years old and move with their mother, father and sister to Beijing. They arrive to an empty apartment among highways and skyscrapers. Aleque and Issay do not understand Chinese, they sleep on air mattresses and miss their toys. When they go to the park, people come up and want to take pictures because they look different. Beating Hearts is a diary documentary recorded as a picture book over five years, where we follow the development from being small children to becoming older school children.

It is displayed with the other Work in progress projects:
