This video was shot on June 1, 2016, when I visited my grandparents in my hometown outside of Chongqing, China. When people talk about China, they mostly talk about the big cities. They talk about how modern and flourishing these crowded metropolises are. They rarely talk about the countryside like my hometown, or farmers like my grandparents. But this is also China, and it’s essential to our culture and identity.
