"Part two of the series China: Through Mao's Eyes explores the formation of the People's Republic of China, its complicated relationship with the Soviet Union, and events that prefaced the Cultural Revolution. Footage documenting the turmoil of the Anti-Rightist movement, China's role in the Korean War, and the misnamed Great Leap Forward reveals Mao's uneven leadership as the young nation struggled to define itself. Interviews with close associates illuminate the Chairman's personal side, including his unusual eating habits, attire, and leisure activities."--Website

Mao une histoire chinoise by Adrian Maben( Visual )

Qui fut cet homme dont Richard Nixon dira qu'il a "transformé la Chine et changé le monde"? A la fois stratège militaire, homme politique, visionnaire, philosophe, mais aussi poète, il fut un manipulateur de génie, alliant sensualité, politique et révolution. Durant trente ans, Mao a régné sur la Chine, considéré comme un dieu dans son propre pays et vénéré comme idole révolutionnaire par des millions de personnes en Occident et dans les pays en voie de développement. Pourquoi et comment un fils de paysan issu d'une province isolée de la Chine profonde est-il parvenu à s'ériger en souverain incontesté de la nation la plus peuplée de la terre, possédant une aura et un pouvoir dignes des plus grands empereurs fondateurs de la Chine ? Qu'est-ce qui a engendré le pèlerinage idéologique de Mao à travers le nationalisme et l'anarchisme pour aboutir au communisme, avec comme point culminant une convulsion terrifiante, iconoclaste, et finalement vouée à l'échec : La Révolution culturelle, dont l'objectif fut de calquer les esprits d'une nation entière sur la pensée unique de Mao
