Waking the Green Tiger

Seen through the eyes of activists, farmers and journalists, Waking the Green Tiger follows an extraordinary campaign to stop a huge dam project on the Upper Yangtze River in southwestern China. Featuring astonishing archival footage never seen outside of China, as well as interviews with a government insider and the people working to save the river, Waking the Green Tiger is an inspired look at a new generation of Chinese environmentalists. Once-marginalized citizens have become part of a "green hurricane" sweeping through China.
