CCTV9 2015 Image
In 2011, we journeyed through time; in 2013, we captured moments in time, and in 2015, we continue to explore how behind the moment when a dream is fulfilled are the long hours of sweat and tears. It is a display of determination, of grit and fortitude in the pursuit of an ideal or a dream. When we see a ballet dancer’s focus on her routine, a young band’s fervent practices, a stunt biker’s skilful maneuvering and school children learning the discipline of Chinese calligraphy, we see different groups of people in pursuit of a perfection, an ideal, a dream. From their journey, determination and grit are revealed; this is reinforced with a narration by a woman and a girl showing how dreams are a lifetime’s pursuit. The journey of the different groups signify how CCTV9 present different angles of the same story without prejudice or bias.
