There is a city in China called Yiwu, that has more than 600 Christmas factories, in which Christmas as we know it is produced for the entire world. Yiwu is a wealthy modern city, inhabited by factory bosses driving luxurious Maseratis, and the entire families of migrant workers with unusually large salaries, who all live and work in Yiwu Christmas factories, trapped in the parallel universe of the eternal Christmastime. A portrait of Yiwu and its workers, an ultimate globalization story, „Merry Christmas, Yiwu” is a melancholic observational documentary with a geopolitical twist, and the alluring visual aesthetic that enhances the irony of modern China – the unexpected place where even Christmas is made.
