Up the Yangtze

When flying back from the Netherlands to China, I watched ‘Up the Yangtze’ from 2007. It’s not a masterpiece but precious video material from China two decades ago. (And I’m always looking for more film material from the 90s and 00s.)

The documentary follows several stories — the main focus being a poor Chinese family that has to relocate because of the Three Gorges Dam, while their eldest daughter leaves home to work.
