JOURNEY TO THE WEST

More and more Chinese tourists come to visit Europe every day. What do they seek? What is their mental picture of Europe before their journey starts? And their thoughts when they discover it?


"Journey to the West" is an embedded documentary film into a bus full of Chinese tourists visiting Europe (6 countries in 10 days!) for the very first time.


This road movie captures with humor, poetry and spirit the cultural differences between China and Europe in a play of mirrors and contrasts. It also destroys the stereotypes about the emerging Chinese middle class and reveals what they think about the “others” who are “us”, the Westerners.
