China’s National Conversation on Pollution Has Finally Begun

By Yiqin Fu

China is talking about its pollution crisis – all because of one moving film by a famous television journalist, and a little help from China’s state media apparatus. It started on Feb. 28, when Chai Jing, one of China’s best-known journalists and a best-selling author, unveiled a self-financed documentary, Under the Dome, online.

The 103-minute film details Chai’s year-long investigation into the root causes of China’s now infamous air pollution and touches on the way in which pollution has affected her own family.
