Jean Michel Jarre is featured in an upcoming documentary by Johan Jonason about making music in China today.
Johan Jonason leaves Sweden and a Europe in crisis, and heads to Shanghai. His goal is to establish himself as a pop singer in China because that’s where the future seems to be. In Shanghai, Johan meets various people involved in the Chinese music industry – producers, DJs and promoters who give him insights into the new, young and contradictory China. Conquering China is an emotional and humorous music documentary that examines and problematizes the
paradigm shift taking place in our world right now.
”I wanted to make a personal and exotic documentary about China, exploring the western view of the country as well as the real China itself.”
