Up Up Up! is a documentary film projected high up on the wall. The title refers to consistently repeats of vertical camera movement.

I shot the footage in my hometown, Hefei, during June and July 2016. There were 186 buildings under construction simultaneously. I used a single handheld camera to shoot from base to top to create a dizzy and uncomfortable visual experience for viewers through vertical movements and rapid growth.
