About Project Atom Boi

Yuanzi/原子 is a doomer in her 20s and a Chinese living in London. Under the pressure of a friend, she takes on a bizarre journey to her past by making a film about her life. Buried underneath her apathy, cynicism and doomerism, Yuanzi now finds herself back in a desert town called Factory 404/四零四厂, a Chinese city built with the sole purpose of hosting a nuclear weapon as well as the place where she spent the happiest time of her life with her dear grandpa, who first came to this city with utopian ideals and shining dreams. Atom Boi works backwards from a numbed state of alienation to examine its influences embedded in a childhood upbringing dominated by utopian ideals, often inextricably bound up with USSR’s historical relationship with China. Age Recommendation: 15+
