Green China Rising is a visually stunning one-hour science doc about how the world’s biggest polluter could become its greatest saviour.   

Green China Rising is a visually stunning one-hour science doc about how the world’s biggest polluter could become its greatest saviour. Mandarin Film produced the documentary from start to finish, raised finance, negotiated co-production partners, and performed all aspects of production.

This was an ambitious project in many key ways – it brought together three co-production partners from Asia to tell a counter-intuitive tale, featured unprecedented access to China’s coal mines, wind turbine factories and far flung deserts, and was one of the first documentaries to be shot using an ArriAlexa camera.

Since its premiere on National Geographic Asia, Green China Rising has been shown in over 30 countries and translated into 5 languages and counting. Beyond that Green China Rising 2.0 aims to be an outlet for further online and mobile outreach strategy to schools, NGOs and the green tech industry.
