  • "Sur la rivière Yangzi, qui sera sous peu complètement transformée par la construction du barrage des Trois Gorges, vogue un luxueux bateau de croisière. À bord, Yu Shui, 16 ans, l'aînée d'une famille de paysans pauvres et analphabètes, travaille à la plonge. À l'instar de deux millions de Chinois, dont plusieurs victimes des exactions de fonctionnaires brutaux et corrompus, les parents de l'adolescente devront quitter la rive, où ils habitent, avant la montée des eaux, qui engloutiront au passage nombre de temples et vestiges de la culture millénaire du pays. Tandis que Yu Shui se morfond dans la cuisine du bateau, l'arrogant Chen Bo Yu, fils unique d'une famille de la classe moyenne, profite des largesses de la clientèle, essentiellement composée de touristes occidentaux.

  • "Indiqué sur la jaquette : Dans le cadre du plus ambitieux projet de construction mis en œuvre depuis la Grande Muraille, la Chine a entrepris d'aménager le Yangzi, mythique voie navigable que les Chinois appellent "le fleuve", par le barrage des Trois-Gorges. Ce barrage, le plus colossal au monde, est le symbole à la fois titanesque, et vivement contesté, du miracle économique chinois. Il constitue la toile de fond de ce long métrage documentaire, somptueux et inquiétant, sur la vie au coeur du rêve chinois du 21e siècle. Grâce à des prises de vues étonnantes, le cinéaste sino-canadien Yung Chang, juxtapose l'histoire des derniers paysans vivant encore au bord du fleuve, aux forces monumentales des eaux qui montent autour d'eux et engloutissent les terres. Le luxueux bateau de croisière qui remonte le Yangzi propose un dernier regard sur une civilisation légendaire, avant que celle-ci ne disparaisse à jamais. Il glisse au milieu d'un paysage radicalement transformé, où les sites anciens et vénérés cèdent la place aux tours clinquantes qui se multiplient pour former l'avenir au néon de la Chine."

  • "Director Yung Chang uses the construction of China's massive Three Gorges Dam as a springboard to better understanding the social hierarchies and changing times in his homeland in this documentary focusing on the luxury cruise ship that carries predominately Western tourists down the Yangtze River. Constructed as a symbol of modern progress in China, the Three Gorges Dam has forced millions of common people out of their ancestral homes, and will soon swallow up numerous nearby towns and villages. Despite the fact that the government has funded alternative housing for the dislocated families, however, many citizens make their way to higher ground feeling as if they have been duped by the powers that be. In order to truly understand how this affects the people, Chang focuses on telling the stories of middle-class scion Chen Bo Yu (renamed "Jerry" by the cruise line) and Yu Shui (who answers to the call of "Cindy" while on duty). As the ship sets sail, this hard-working pair do their best to familiarize themselves with Western social cues, striving to perform to the best of their abilities, and ponder the prospects of a brighter future."@en
