Overview

Description

During decades, China has been the land of conformism (same work, same clothes, same haircut, same everything). But for the post 90’s generation this game is over. ‘I am’ now replaces ‘We are’. You don’t put words in their mouth, you don’t speak for them, you don’t define them nor label them. So we let the post 90s speak for the post 90s. We gave them Carte Blanche to do whatever they wanted under the concept: Watch me. Watch me, a social movement led by 90 Post 90’s Internet influencers. A 90 seconds film has been produced, with 90 key visuals.
