A sprawling megalopolis
The mighty Pearl River Delta in Guangdong Province, China, is one of the world's most populated and fastest-growing delta regions in the world.
This series follows the course of the country's third most extensive river system, from the mountains to the sea, where clusters of cities have connected to form a megalopolis now referred to as the Greater Bay Area.

These events gave rise to a revolutionary current carried by an anti-capitalist and feminist youth eager for freedom that defied a very conservative society and martial law.
This film tells this story through the prism of Anadolu pop, a music style born on the barricades that combined local sound with western rock on lyrics inspired by the Anatolian poetic heritage.
