The rise of a Green Movement in China
Waking the Green Tiger is a feature documentary from Face to Face Media, the award winning team that created Nuclear Dynamite, the story of the environmental movement in America.
Seen through the eyes of activists, farmers, and journalists Waking the Green Tiger follows an extraordinary and unprecedented campaign to stop a huge dam project on the Upper Yangtze river in the high mountains of southwestern China.
Ending Mao’s War Against Nature
Featuring astonishing archival footage never seen outside China, and interviews with a government insider and witnesses, the documentary also tells the story of Chairman Mao’s determination to conquer nature in the name of progress. Millions of people were mobilized in campaigns that reshaped China’s landscape, destroyed lakes, marshes, forests and grasslands, unleashed dust storms, and stifled science. For fifty years the idea was instilled in succeeding generations that nature must serve the people. Critics of this approach were silenced for years.
