Guangzhou Dream Factory offers an accessible, yet nuanced and complex, view into the dynamic lives of entre/preneurial Africans living in China. The insightful narrative and the great selection of subjects make this film a uniquely engaging portrayal of ongoing global transformations. A must-see documentary dispelling outdated stereotypes of hopeless and helpless Africans.
