Today a link showed up in my daily consumption of information. It lead to an article with the rather sensationalist title called “Mother of a baby cheats the censorship in China with 200 millions viewers of smog-movie”. Obviously a linkbait article, and the article itself didn’t link to a way of watching this movie, so a bit of searching (actually just searching for the title) led me to a subtitled version of the movie.

I then started watching the movie, thinking to myself: “It might be interesting, I’ll give it a shot”.

What I found and saw was a brutally clear picture of the situation with pollution in China and looked into key reasons for and why it keeps happening. With a lot of relevant comparisons, interviews key people and an extremely well set-up explanation of the situation and the causes and concerns.

I can really recommend watching this movie. It is equally scary, as it is enlightening. Even if the subject matter is China, it has relevant parallels to the rest of the world. Definitely worth the time.

Subtitles: Chinese, English, French and Japanese
