Du Fu: China’s Greatest Poet will be premiere in China on Thursday 11th June, 9pm on CCTV9!  

《伟大诗人杜甫》即将在央视纪录频道播出!

 

This CCTV9 and the BBC co-production was produced by Mandarin Film and Mayavison,  hosted by the classic BBC presenter Michael Wood, with poems narrated by movie legend Ian McKellen.

本片由中央电视台纪录片频道和BBC共同出品,由华影制片和英国Mayavision联合制作,由BBC著名主持人Michael Wood主持,片中的杜甫诗由传奇电影人Ian McKellen朗读。

 

 

China has the oldest living tradition of poetry in the world. More than 3000 years old. Older than Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. And for the Chinese, poets have always been the ones who most truthfully expressed the feelings of the people.

 

To the Chinese, their greatest poet is Du Fu. Du Fu lived in the 8th Century, the age of Beowulf in Britain. It was the Tang dynasty, a time of extraordinary cultural accomplishment, that ended in horrendous warfare and the death of millions. And out of that suffering, Du Fu created his art.

 

中国拥有世界上最悠久的诗歌传统,长达3000多年的历史。现存最古老的中国诗歌甚至比荷马古诗还要古老对于中国人来说,诗人从来都是正直表达人民想法的那些人。而且有一个诗人是至高无上的,他就是杜甫。他生活在中国最伟大的朝代唐朝,公元8世纪的唐朝 (英国的贝奥武夫时代),经历着动荡不安的战乱与变革,数百万人丧生,在这些灾难中,他创造了自己的艺术。

 

Michael Wood travels through today’s China in search of one of the stars of world literature: Du Fu. No ancient poet has left us with such a detailed and intimate autobiography, in the form of hundreds of poems written from his youth right through to the last days of his life. The story is told through Du Fu’s own words, and Sir Ian McKellen will speak Du Fu’s poetry to camera. 
历史学家/主持人Michael Wood穿行在当今中国,寻找世界文坛最耀眼的明星之一杜甫。没有哪个古代诗人留给我们如此细致、贴近生活的自传,这些诗歌多达上百首,从他的青年时期一直到生命的尽头。故事将用杜甫自己的诗歌来讲述,并由Ian Mckellen爵士在屏幕前朗读。

 

The one hour documentary has been aired on BBC4 and was launched on BBC Iplayer too.  We are so excited that the documentary will now get it's China premiere! 

本片一小时版本已在BBC4播出,并登陆BBC iplayer,我们非常期待本片在中国的首映!
