Storyboard Text

  • Much of that concrete has gone into constructing new, large scale urban projects. Now, many of the buildings in these budding metropolises lie empty. They’re called “ghost cities,” but whereas “ghost towns” are usually abandoned boom towns, China’s ghost cities were never alive in the first place. These towns are still waiting for their boom to happen, either organically, or through intervention of the state.
  • since these ghost cities came into construction many people have lost they're homes. where we grew up and played memories are lost
  • many people come to this replica of Paris to get married not realizing many people have lost they're homes so that the government can spend 50 billion dollars on this project.
  • The ghost city of Ordos has become quite famous in the past couple years. Or, to be more specific, Kangbashi has. The sprawling, 137 square mile metropolis was planned in 2003 as a subdistrict of Ordos. It was built 16 miles from the preexisting urban center of Dongsheng. It was thought that Kangbashi would hold over a million people. In 2014, it was said to hold a “lonely” 20,000. That’s like building a city the size of Dallas, and having only a small suburb move into it.
