Film Project: ‘Chongqing: The Disappeared City’ (English Version)


电影项目: 重庆:消失的城市  (英文)



On this page you can find the links that will enable you to see the various parts of the Film Project: ‘Chongqing: The Disappeared City (As We Imagine It)’. Made from old and new photographs as well as video footage, the film was photographed entirely on our mobile phones (one Apple, one Huawei) and edited in PR on an ordinary laptop. There are two trailers (so far) and the rest of the episodes (or paragraphs) were released on a weekly basis from March to October on the Chinese webportal, Bilibili/. The videos below are a rough cut and we have re-edited and re-combined these ‘paragraphs’ into three parts, together making up the whole film - finished in the autumn of this year (2020). You can find the complete (but perhaps not quite yet finally completed) English and Chinese versions on the ‘home’ or ‘index-page’ of this website or, as this may be a little slow, go directly to the links given below.


English language version in three parts:






Part Three: ECHOES



Peter Nesteruk wrote the text (which, together with other texts on Chongqing and urban space, can be found on this website). Sophie Cai (Caicai/蔡蔡) provided the photographs and video footage (with some additional images by Peter) and edited the film. Ouyang Yiwen translated the original English text into Chinese, and provided the Chinese language voiceover. Matthew Crampton provided the English language voiceover. Special thanks to Wang Fei (王飞) for technical assistance.


Sophie and Peter have also worked together on a book about architecture in Beijing.


蔡蔡和彼得也一起合作了一本关于北京建筑的书: 北京天际线
