Buyer Walker Rover aka. Then There (Yiwu)
Buyer Walker Rover depicts the journey of a Spanish girl Anna who came to Yiwu in search of dreams alone. The video with its multiple subtitles in 12 languages is a reflection of the cultural landscape in Yiwu, the largest small commodities distribution center in the world. For Anna, studying and adopting foreign languages is almost a given, and always connected with her new life and the sense of estrangement “then there”.
