Abstract:

Life surrounding the Yangtze is changing due to the Three Gorges Dam. Filmmaker Yung Chang goes on a farewell cruise that traverses the gargantuan waterway.

A luxury cruise boat motors up the Yangtze--navigating the mythic waterway known in China simply as "The River." The Yangtze is about to be transformed by the biggest hydroelectric 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.
