 China’s first movie was made in 1905 when great changes were taking place in Chinese society. Films, as vivid records of the times, have since then recorded all the happenings of China in the century. Films enrich people’s lives and inspire their spirit. To mark the 100th anniversary of the Chinese film industry, this documentary has chosen and highlighted the events and figures of milestone significance in “Chinese films and films of China” to probe how Chinese films have developed from entertainment to enlightenment, and to show a centennial splendour and glory of the Chinese film industry.
