The film's synopsis:
Winner of the Reel China 2006 Best Documentary Award, Shu Haolun's Nostalgia is a breakthrough film about the transformation of Shanghai's urban environment. When Shu hears that the neighbourhood of traditional shikumen housing he grew up in is slated for demolition, Shu takes his DV camera back home. Moving between chats with grandma, walks through the old alleyways, and re-enactments of his childhood, the result is an entertaining but pointed and poignant diary about the heavy price to be paid for urban development.
