I noticed that in america, we call foreigners, specifically those from “3rd world” countries; immigrants. Even if they are just there for a vacation, visit or work. However, a westerner abroad in any country is considered an expat. Why is that? Truth be told, I am an american and I am indeed an immigrant in a foreign country. Why am I called an expat, but a chinese person in america, even just going to school or business contracting is considered an immigrant? Funny psychological business going on here……

A short film I shot at taidong night market following a fellow expat. The idea is to get a POV of what it’s like in China on various levels. The interpretation is left up to the viewer.
