China in Three Words
Author Yu Hua is one of the only "honest writers to survive in China," Ian Johnson recently wrote. This makes him an inspiration. This short documentary takes its cue from an interview with Yu Hua about his book "China in Ten Words," focusing on words common in the Chinese vernacular: "Leader," "Revolution" and "Disparity." Each word is illustrated with a personal story and insightful, witty analysis of the breakneck social and economic change happening in China today.
