China : Jiwei Han –Launderette


I was practicing this project since November 2011. I would choose it because, firstly, I come from China and we have no any launderette. So, I am very curious about this place. And more, for me the launderette ismore like a ‘Microscope’, through it which can reflect some typical British social and cultural issues from its inside world if I want to know and understand about people’s life. Secondly, which reasons encourage me to do this project are from the British movie ‘My Beautiful Laundrette’ [1985], which mixed the racism and sexism issues and had caused considerable attention in the international film world. I was thinking at that time why the story background would be set in a launderette by the director Stephen Frears, instead of to put it in some other places, such pubs or supermarkets.
