New World

21 seconds from 3 minutes 59 seconds

‘New World’ contemplates man’s hopes and aspirations pitted against reality and our limitations. The red curtain and costumed Alice showcase a journey about to begin; dreamy lyrics offer hope of “a whole new world’ as we glide across the South China Sea and scan the hopeful faces on an Ocean Park escalator. We are reminded of the impermanence of such elation with the constant backdrop of themed Disneyland and a young boy’s inability to separate the obvious gap between what is real and artificial.
