The studio which made a cartoon about how China’s President Xi Jinping made it to the top has released its second work: “The Communist Party Of China Is With You Along The Way.”
The three-minute video illustrates the many dreams of China’s people.
From students and farmers to dancers and delivery staff, their aspirations are various. Among them are “a good harvest,” ”to start a diner,” “some more pension,” “a pretty wife,” “azure sky and cleaner water” and “a world free of wars.”
The words: “Our people’s dreams are our goals” appear on the screen, a quote from Xi.
Over film of urban and rural scenes is the description: “This is an ancient and youthful country. It is growing fast yet with development disparities. It’s full of opportunities along with untold challenges. But its 1.3 billion people all have their own dreams.
“The 80 million Communist Party members together with the entire population are working for everyone’s dream. On the road chasing our dreams, we walk side by side, sharing weal and woe, transcending difference and shaping the future together.”
Led by the Party, Chinese people have the opportunity to make their dreams come true, the video concludes.
Chinese landmarks such as the Great Wall and water towns in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, as well as scenes from modern life, including traffic jams and factories pouring out smoke, are featured.
Hammer and sickle
A Shikumen building in Shanghai, the site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China, is also shown.
About a third of the way through, the Party emblem of a hammer and sickle appears in the bottom right hand corner.
Mystery surrounds the makers of the video. The studio is only identified as Fuxinglushang, or “On the road to revival.”
Fuxing is a pun which can be understood as revival in Chinese. No other clues were given to its identity but many people believe the video had been made by official agencies based in Beijing.
Many Chinese cities have a Fuxing Road. In Beijing, the road is lined with government departments, including offices of the General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, and China Central TV Station.

The studio’s first work, telling how national leaders achieved their positions, proved hugely popular.
The cartoon featuring Xi, US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron was viewed more than a million times in the first three days after it went online in October.
Xi’s story focused on the selection process of Chinese leaders while comparing China’s system with that of the US and Britain.
Some Internet users have speculated that the clip was probably a gesture to the political reforms to come at November’s Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee.
