For 888, Georgia is editing a trailer for a feature length documentary titled New Beijing - Reinventing a City. What happens when China's Government wants a make-over for its capital city? Money is no obstacle as the cream of international architects are called on to build a new generation of mega-structures to symbolise the regime's aspirations. Internationally renowned architects Paul Andreu, John Billmon, and OMA'S Ole Scheeren show us their buildings and explain the process of working with the Chinese. The documentary also captures the transformation of Ai Wei Wei (one of China's most internationally recognised conceptual artists) from enthusiast to public critic of the make-over of his city at a time when it is still dangerous to criticise the regime. He demands permanent reforms, and he believes now is the time to realise these changes. Just how much "opening up" will the Chinese Government tolerate as Beijing steps into the international spotlight?
