"Provides amazing insight not only into the way other cultures view life in the United States but also shines a spotlight on many aspects of life in China" - StudentFilmReviews.org

As China continues to expand its economy, some are looking to flee the congestion and pollution of major cities to find space and community in the outlying suburbs. In this time of rapid development, some planners are crafting themed towns that offer idealized versions of foreign locales. Americaville focuses on Jackson Hole, a new community that models itself after the Wyoming resort town, and Annie Liu, a woman who moves there in search of her version of the "American Dream." Told with humor and pathos, Americaville is a rare and intimate look at the growing Chinese middle class.
