Product Description

Gr 9 UpThis informative film was released in 2008 as a non-traditional travelogue for visitors attending the Summer Olympics. The six cities featured that hosted games are Shanghai, Qingdao, Qinhuangdao, Tianjin, Shenyang, and Hong Kong. The pleasant voice of narrator Chris Verrill, scenic video footage, and the unique viewpoint of producer Bill Einreinhofer all combine to make this film a good choice for schools as well as for travelers. Rather than focusing on China's history and famous places, the director shows the many ways in which Western culture blends into the past and present China. Viewers learn that thousands of Jews were welcomed to Shanghai after World War II, German immigrants gave Quindao its best known productbeer, and an Italian architect directed the restoration of Italian concession buildings in Tianjin. It is no surprise that sports received major coverage. Reference to events scheduled in each of the six cities and interviews with coaches and athletes will be of less interest now that the Olympics are over. Teachers can select specific chapters from the menu to facilitate classroom use."Sally Ray, Plano Senior High School, Plano, TX" Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
