Sesame Opens a Skylight

In the years of urban transformation, a former industrial area in Chongqing is forgotten. The residents who are still living here rely on the governmental railway system. They have been living there for around fifty years.    

Through observation and fieldworks, Sesame Opens a Skylight Radio takes on the historical memory of the community where the first railroad in China was built, collecting their personal oral histories.

The work seeks to map out a landscape geography transformed by affective and subjective states.
