When Zhou Hao was a photojournalist in his earlier life, he paid particular attention to the urban development and the life of migrant workers in China. His first documentary, Houjie Township, was made in Dongguan in 2002, where numerous shoe and furniture factories sprang up. Houjie has become a gathering place for migrant workers and hooligans, with chains of subleasing, prostitution, pickpocketing, gambling, certification forging and black-market clinics coming into being as people try to make a living. This street alone is an underworld.
This documentary closely follows the marginal life of migrant workers. In small rental apartments, each tenant has their own struggles in life as they search for a breathing space and hopes amid predicament. Perhaps in every bustling city, there is a street like Houjie.
