A film by Yung Chang

"An astonishing documentary of culture clash and the erasure of history amid China's economic miracle."
-Stephen Holden, The New York Times

"Mandatory viewing for anyone interested in the grim flipside to China's rise to economic power."
-Flaunt Magazine

China's Yangtze River—and all of the life that surrounds it—is undergoing a truly astonishing transformation wrought by the largest hydroelectric project in history, the Three Gorges Dam.

Canadian documentary filmmaker Yung Chang returns to the gorgeous, now-disappearing landscape of his grandfather's youth to trace the surreal life of a "farewell cruise" that traverses the gargantuan waterway. With touching humanism and wry wit, Chang follows the microcosmic society of the luxury liner and the bitter irony of a young girl sent to work as a dish-washer aboard the ship—to provide for her peasant family as the river's floodwaters drive them from their home. Up the Yangtze gives a human dimension to the wrenching changes facing not only an increasingly globalized China, but the world at large.
