About This Episode
This documentary focuses on Hutong, the cultural symbol of traditional life in Beijing. Though well-known around the world, many Hutongs are actually facing the problem of demolition, and the shortage of governmental administration and public cleaning. Residents, especially old ones, keep living in the messy, dilapidated, and even dangerous households and alleys, for they cannot reach an agreement with government on the issue of removal compensation. In the documentary, we reveal the true environment of Hutongs and interview several Hutong residents about their opinions on the present situation. Concluding from those interviews, we also propose some possible solutions to the problem.
