Looking for the Master Plan

-How did Beijing become the city it is today?
Why was the capital originally placed on the Huabei plain? And
where the bloody hell is the first ring road? "Looking for the Master Plan" is
a crash course in Beijing's urban development. Through this talk you will get a
clear understanding of how Beijing became the city it is today. Using their own
collection of original maps of Beijing, Beijing Postcards has created a very
visual presentation of the development of the Northern capital, from a maze of
hutong alleyways to a megacity with over 20 million inhabitants.

“Three Weddings and a Divorce” is a portrait of three women all living in Beijing. Grandmother Wang – with bound “Lily-feet” – 63-year-old Liu Xiao Bing – whose life was heavily affected by the Cultural Revolution – and 34-year-old successful business woman Xie Rui. Together, they can account for the last hundred years of Beijing’s history. Their life stories illustrate the incredible change the role of women has undergone in Chinese society. It tells of how the custom of feet-binding was thrown out and condemned by revolutionary slogans that projected model female workers to the fore, but the idea of the good-natured communist woman now seems distant, having been replaced by the high stilettos of ‘modern society’.

Beijing Postcards has been following the lives of these women for four plus years. During this period a great deal has changed, not least that “Three Weddings and a Divorce” has now become “Four Weddings and a Divorce”!
