Home > Blossary: Under the Dome
A new documentary on the pall blanketing China’s skies by a former state television reporter swiftly commandeered the attention of tens of millions online over the weekend. Titled “Under the Dome,” the film is an impassioned production by Chai Jing, a well-known journalist who left China Central Television last year shortly after the birth of her first child. Since its release online on Saturday, it has racked up some 100 million views on major Chinese video portals such as Tencent and Youku. The film’s release comes just days before the start of China’s most public annual political event – the meetings of the national legislature and a government advisory body. The environment is expected to figure prominently among the topics discussed.
