Editorial Reviews

Damon treks the rural heartland of China's remote provinces to meet some of the nation's most colorful and distinct ethnic minorities. In a land of 1.3 billion people he seeks out the distant villages and peoples that time forgot to learn their traditional myths and legends. Damon then follows the sweep of Imperial China from the first Emperor 200 years before Christ to the last one, under a century ago.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Instead of the Han monolith that China is perceived to be, Damon and colleagues bring out the complex medley of different ethnicities to the forefront. The monolithic perception of China is to some extent is correct because of impact of the Cultural Revolution, absorption of many communities into one emerging Han identity and continued state encouragement of Han to dominate lands that were ancestrally belonging to minorities. Nonetheless after some recent reforms, there seems to be a new lease of life to these forgotten people of what is now China. Resurgence of identity and pride in their culture is key to survival of some communities that are explored in this documentary. Overall it is a nice cursory look. A good first introduction for anyone who is not aware of the customs of these ethnicities.

This is a rather distracting photo shoot of the author himself, and not of the country and its people and activities.
Further distracting is the speed with which the composition goes from scene to scene. More reminiscent of an
"action movie" than a travel documentary. Would probably not watch this author again.

I love China and have never actually been there, but enjoy studying all about it. This travelogue was respectful, educational, and enjoyable. I would love to watch more travelogues with the same host.

Long time student of Chinese culture, i enjoy this narrative. If you enjoy travel, learning about different cultures, especially Chinese you'll enjoy this video.
