China's Van Goghs

Since its time as a small quiet settlement in the 1980s, the village of Dafen in Shenzhen, China, has come a long way. Its 10,000 residents include hundreds of peasants-turned oil painters whose work is to replicate Western masterpieces. "China`s Van Goghs" follows the life of one of these painters, Xiaoyong Zhao. Having painted around 100,000 Van Goghs with his family, he has forged a deep connection to the man behind the paintings. But on a long-awaited European trip to see the original art in person, a realisation strikes him. Devastated but finally understanding his true purpose to find the art within himself, he dedicates himself to making his own originals. This documentary not only tells Zhao`s story, but the story of the human struggle and fulfilling dreams - a microcosm of the swerve China is taking in going from `made in China` to `created in China`.
