UP THE YANGTZE
(Canada/2008—directed by Yung Chang)
In China it's known simply as “The River.” But the Yangtze – and all the life that surrounds it – is undergoing a transformation wrought by the largest hydroelectric project in history: the Three Gorges Dam. Chinese-Canadian director Yung Chang returns to the stunning, quickly-disappearing landscape of his grandfather’s youth to trace the surreal experience of a lavish “farewell cruise” – packed with well-to-do American and European tourists – as it traverses the gargantuan waterway. Overflowing with wit and deeply perceptive humanism, Chang captures a decisive moment in modern history in what The New York Times called “An astonishing documentary of culture clash and the erasure of history.” (93 min.)

An episode of the rarely seen Fraggle Rock (1983) contrasts three communities: the musical Fraggles, the industrious Doozers, and the giant Gorgs, who all co-exist in a carefully balanced underground world—with those mysterious human creatures who live above ground. The Song of the Cloud Forest (1989) is a beautiful evocation of the rainforest that focuses on the story of a golden toad who must avoid the “uprights” trying to catch him. (90 min.)
