A Thousand-Year Stage is an experimental non-fiction film that features local residents of Xiongan New Area, Chinaʼs most recently planned megacity. The film combines observational footage of local residents with staged performances on current and proposed high-speed rail stations in Xiongan New Area. This transitional moment in the history of the region, is captured foregrounding the station and its occupants showing the physical and temporal collapsing of scales that occurs when a high-speed rail station is built at a scale far larger than its rural surroundings
