>> Review It




China's Yangtze River - and all of the life that surrounds it - is undergoing a truly astonishing transformation wrought by the largest hydroelectric project in history, the Three Gorges Dam. Canadian documentary filmmaker Yung Chang returns to the gorgeous, now-disappearing landscape of his grandfather's youth to race the surreal life of a "farewell cruise" that traverses the gargantuan waterway. With touching humanism and wry wit, Chang follows the microcosmic society of the luxury liner and the bitter irony of a young girl sent to work as a dishwasher aboard the ship - trying to provide for her peasant family as the river's floodwaters drive them from their home. Up The Yangtze gives a human dimension to the wrenching changes facing not only an increasingly globalized China, but the world at large.
