Guangzhou, aka Canton, is southern China’s centuries-old trading port. Today it is a mecca of mass consumption, its vast international trading centers crammed with every “Made in China” good imaginable. Every year more than half a million Africans travel to Guangzhou where they buy goods to sell back in Africa. Over time, some have chosen to stay, and for these Africans, China looks like the new land of opportunity, a place where anything is possible. But is it? Following a filmmaker’s journey from Ghana to China and back to Africa, Guangzhou Dream Factory provides a rare glimpse of African aspirations in an age of endless outsourcing.
