Abstract:

How will future historians view the 2008 Summer Olympics? Will the Beijing games be viewed as a turning point in Chinese history? Or will they be seen as a spectacular façade concealing the intractability of Chinese leadership? Filmed during China's pre-Olympic fervor, this program follows citizens of varied ages and backgrounds as they help to shape China's inner workings and its image on the global stage. Viewers will meet a preteen gymnast exhausted from her Olympic training, a high school girl striving to join the Communist Party, a rural mayor up for reelection, and a famous artist who, because of his father's persecution under Mao, is uneasy about his role in designing the Olympic Stadium.
