The Global Lives Project is an innovative video installation, as well as a collaborative online video library of the human experience.

Global Lives China documented a day in the life of Kai Liu, a 37-year old produce procurement officer for the local boarding school in Anren, a small town outside of Chengdu, in China's Sichuan province. He is in charge of buying, delivering and cleaning the produce for the over 6,000 students at the school. After his work at the school, Kai helps to run a nearby convenience store with his wife, Jue.

The crew: Ya-Hsuan Huang (Producer/Director, Camera), Yi Han (Co-Producer); Nobuhiro Awata, Bastien Robillard, Hiroko Sumikura and Irene Herrera (Camera); Chieko Kato and Fang Liang with Michele Travierso (Still Photos); Major Tian and David Harris (P.A.); Christina Liu (Translation Coordinator)
