In Ordos, China, thousands of farmers are being relocated in another city due to a government plan to modernize the region. The documentary follows a government official whose job is to convince the workers of moving to the city.
The Chinese government is inaugurating a city. Almost like a prototype, the place is built on a strict plan that includes both all the different areas with assigned home units as well as their public routines and the ways of inhabiting them. A city is designed, and its citizens too. The plan includes the relocation of farmers living in the outskirts, who surrender their lands –with mixed levels of enthusiasm– in exchange for an apartment and a series of urban tutorials that promote quality of life for everyone. The Land of Many Places oscillates between a rigorous biographical portrait and the contemplation of a stunning artificial landscape and its attractions, which include a scale replica of a small farm, like a museum piece.
