New documentary sends out China’s New Year wish
A new publicity video about China may add cheers to Chinese across the globe who are now celebrating the Spring Festival with fireworks and family dinners, and might also provide more insights to foreigners eager to understand the mysterious country.
The 17-minute documentary, the “sister version” of the 60-second video shown on New York City’s Times Square, will be aired over several foreign TV networks, including Discovery Asia, starting Thursday.
The premiere is arranged to coincide with the first day of the Spring Festival, when the Chinese people welcome in the Lunar New Year together with their families.
“We’d like to present to the world a more diversified China, a goal that could not be achieved with the one-minute version,” said Shen Zanchen, producer of the film.
