Rate this:
For Chinese painters and calligraphers, the Yellow Mountain and the Peach Blossom Land at its feet have long been places of pilgrimage. This program presents the region as a living window into China's past. Through conversations with artists and craftspeople, the film reveals a land in which ink, paper, and brushes are all still manufactured according to ancient traditions - with as much artisan perfection as the images they produce. Viewers are taken to several locations in Anhui province, including Hongcun and Xidi - two well-preserved villages that are UNESCO World Heritage sites and have been featured in several Chinese movies, such as Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
