In April, 2015, a“Shared History” photograph presentation as well as a handover ceremony was held in Guangzhou Library. At the ceremony, some old photos of Guangzhou was given to Guangzhou Library by the Consulate General of New Zealand as witness of the friendship of China and New Zealand.
These Guagnzhou old photos taken by New Zealanders tell stories of the past but left questions for people nowadays to discover. Who has taken these photos? Why were they brought out of China? What's the story of Chinese miners behind the photos?
To answering these qustions, a director from Canton, Vanckey Cai, shot a documentary on the quest to the stories of the forgotten photos.
