:: Spotlight :: Movie Trailer - Up The Yangtze

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

A luxury cruise boat motors up the Yangtze River - navigating the mythic waterway known in China simply as “The River.” The Yangtze is about to be transformed by the biggest hydro-electric dam in history. At the river's edge - a young woman says goodbye to her family as the floodwaters rise towards their small homestead. The Three Gorges Dam - contested symbol of the Chinese economic miracle - provides the epic backdrop for Up The Yangtze, a dramatic feature documentary on life inside modern China.

Up The Yangtze has won best documentary awards at San Francisco and Vancouver International Film Festivals.
