Berlin Premiere

Step into Zhili, a town 150 km from Shanghai, a place where China’s largest hub for children’s clothing production can be found. Youth (Spring) intimately captures the lives of the young workers who hail from rural regions crossed by the Yangtze River. With personal aspirations as their compass, these individuals must navigate the challenges of the textile industry, weaving the fabric of their futures amidst the unrelenting hum of over 18,000 clothing factories. Within this setting, friendships and romances ebb and flow in sync with the changing seasons, financial conflicts, and the pull of family pressures.
