Jiangsu [electronic resource]: Between the Emperor Canal and Modern Skyscrapers

This program reveals the varied cultural landscape of China's Jiangsu province, which is marked by a number of venerable waterways. Viewers visit the old city of Suzhou, which contains gardens recognized on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The modern industrial city of Wuxi has long been famed as a city of science; its Donglin Academy of Classical Learning, established in 1111 A.D., offers lessons in calligraphy and classical music. And it was in the former capital and imperial city of Nanjing, on the River Yangtze, that medieval explorer Zheng He built his treasure fleet. The film also showcases China's largest statue of the Buddha and depicts the production of silk, embroidery, gold brocade, and finely painted clay figures.
