Young Voices of the Chinese Diaspora

My friend Keinst who studied in Beijing has created a video project called “Ethnicity and Identity” which you can find in four parts on his youtube channel.

He writes:

I interviewed seven ethnically Chinese people who were born and raised in different countries and I asked them how they identified themselves.

As the world becomes smaller and more interconnected, old ways of thinking become less and less suitable. New ways of understanding things must be introduced to adapt to new phenomenons; this documentary attempts to do just that. For most people, ethnicity and identity are seen as one thing. However, I theorize that in the future these two concepts will grow further apart and at the same time become vague. This piece serves as a window into the future as well as into my own personal thoughts.

Check out the first video in the series below, and find the rest here.
