My Journey from the Song Dynasty, a short video produced by the Wenzhou Media Group taking the perspective of a piece of porcelainware, recently won the first prize at the Tell China Stories national short video competition.
Among the many artifacts unearthed at the Shuomen ancient port site, Longquan porcelain is among the strongest evidence showing the prosperity of the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and Wenzhou's pivotal role in supporting trade along the Maritime Silk Road in ancient times.
The video tells the story of the thousand-year journey of Shuomen ancient port through the perspective of a Song Dynasty Longquan porcelain bowl.
