    The Wangs
    HD video | 40min | 2016


    Official Selection
    2017 Tales of Our Time, Guggenheim Museum, New York

    The World Wang Clan Association was about to have its 12th convention in Nov 2015 in Chongqing, China. As the most common surname in ethnic Chinese all over the world, it was estimated to comprise around 15% of the population in Mainland China. The clan identity thus has become difficult to define due to its universality. This documentary followed the 12th World Wang Clan Convention, trying to observe how such kind of community was perceived and imagined, while how meanings were generated out of meaninglessness.
