On Jan 1, they released a series of short documentaries called Light of Life, which captures the unusual lives of ordinary people.

In each 25-minute episode, the length of a meal, people will see the stories unfold over three consecutive days.

For instance, the first episode records the stories of travelers who try to enter Tibet by taking a dangerous path from Yunnan and stop by a place called the Sichuan Hotel.

"We are living a very fast-paced life so people forget their original selves. By watching other people's lives, we get the chance to reflect and rediscover ourselves," says Li.

The director of the first episode of Light of Life, 27-year-old Zhou Xiaomeng, says: "We don't want to teach people lessons through our documentaries. We just want people to see other people's lives over a meal.

"It's a show, but in a documentary style."
