Two new documentary films about China are now available on YouTube. The description of the first film, Children of Blessing, says:
China’s Lahu minority has for centuries lived in the Yunnan hills bordering Burma. The hills have kept the Lahu safe and secluded but also poor and malnourished. Now forty-six ten-year old Lahu girls are sent to an elite Chinese primary school where they will learn to speak Chinese and enter mainstream Chinese society. Can the girls do well at the school yet maintain their cultural identity?
From the filmmakers’ description of the second film, The Unseen China:
In this thirty-minute documentary we propose to look at how China’s one billion unseen ordinary citizens has been affected by China’s economic transition. And we show that corruption in economic reforms has left many Chinese poor and angry.
