1893-1945: Against the Tide—Mao’s Early Years

Part one of the series China: Through Mao’s Eyes describes Mao Zedong’s youth, his formative adulthood, and his consolidation of power. Archival photographs from Mao’s childhood and education, film clips from his campaigns against foreign invaders and Chinese nationalists, and lavish, government-produced reconstructions of the Long March detail the drama of those decades. Film excerpts featuring Jiang Qing, the actress who became Mao’s fifth wife and a feared political force, highlight the Chairman’s unpredictable life choices. Based on Philip Short’s definitive biography Mao: A Life. Not available in French-speaking Canada. (61 minutes)
