Nong Jia le =: Peasant Family Happiness

"Tourism in China today signifies many things. ... In the words of Dr. Stevan Harrell, Prof. of Anthropology at the Univ. of Washington, 'This colorful, entertaining, gently ironic documentary presents a vivid and sensitive portrait of a side of China that is little known outside the country: the world of ethnic tourism. In recent years, hundreds of millions of Chinese tourists, mostly city-dwellers, have used their newly increased incomes to travel. And many of the places they visit are ethnic minority villages in China's West and Southwest. They go there for the culture, for the scenery, for the clean air, for something different to see and do.'"--From http://www.berkeleymedia.com/catalog/berkeleymedia/films/anthropology_world_cultures/asian_pacific_studies/peasant_family_happiness [...]
