High-population centers of enormous size are springing up in China with dizzying speed. With them comes an increased demand for migrant workers in the construction sector, factories and mines. Some 150 million people have already set out from underdeveloped rural provinces to earn their living. Swiss film-maker Villi Hermann, together with Swiss photographer Andreas Seibert, based in Tokyo, accompanied migrant workers (mingong) over a period of several years in order to document their lives and work. "From Somewhere to Nowhere" was filmed in the provinces of Sichuan, Hebei, Hunan, Guangdong, Liaoning, Chongqing, Shanxi, Jangsu, Anhui, Jiangxi and Inner Mongolia A.R.
