Abstract:

Ying Zheng became king of the Chinese kingdom of Qin at 13. In his early 20s, he began to rule in his own name, and immediately set about consolidating China's seven kingdoms into one magnificent empire. Domestically, he standardized weights and measures, currency, written language, and built the Great Wall. He christened himself Shi Huangdi--First Emperor. In 1974 farmers digging a well stumbled upon his last, and perhaps most remarkable accomplishment: the terra-cotta army. 7,000 life size soldiers, archers, and horses filled four huge underground chambers. This film tells his story, revealing one of many reasons the Chinese are so proud of the long history of their civilization and culture.
