The Road to Fame
The Road to Fame is a documentary directed by Hao Wu.

The Road to Fame tells a unique story of coming-of-age with Chinese characteristics.  The film chronicles the staging of the American musical Fame-China's first official collaboration with Broadway-by the senior class at China's top drama academy as their graduation showcase.  During the eight-month process, five students compete for roles, struggle with pressure from family and authority, and prepare to graduate into a cutthroat and corrupt show business.  Part of China's One-Child generation, they have been spoiled growing up but are now obliged to carry on the failed dreams of their parents.  They must confront complex social realities and their own anxieties, and, in the process of staging Fame, negotiate their own paths to success in today's China.

Visit The Road to Fame for more information or to view the trailer.

"...a great documentary that shows the struggles of modern Chinese youth, and the different cultures and attitudes that have come to influence their dreams."
