Filmed over three years in China and the USA, Maineland is a multi-layered coming-of-age tale that follows two affluent and cosmopolitan teenagers as they settle into a boarding school in blue-collar rural Maine. Part of the enormous wave of “parachute students” from China enrolling in American private schools, bubbly, fun-loving Stella and introspective Harry come seeking a Western-style education and an escape from the dreaded Chinese college entrance exam. As Stella and Harry’s fuzzy visions of the American dream slowly gain more clarity, they ruminate on their experiences of alienation, culture clash, and personal identity, sharing new understandings and poignant discourses on home and country.
