Misty Clouds is filmed in Taiyuan in the province of Shanxi in Northern China where half of the country’s coal energy is produced. The video portrays environmental engineering students and citizens of Taiyuan and their reflections on the production of coal, health, urban planning, and financial structures. Larger environmental questions are juxtaposed with the personal experiences of individuals living under extreme pollution. The film balances the factiously staged and the documentary.
