(Documentary) Movie of the Day: Ascension (2021) by Jessica Kingdon

China transformed from a closed off society and impoverished country to becoming one of the world’s economic leaders. This 2022 Academy Award-nominated film asks what happens to the people of a nation undergoing such drastic changes in such a short time span as they pursue the “Chinese Dream”. But what does the dream look like on an individual level, from the bottom up? Exploring hyper-capitalism in China, this film takes the viewer through the layers of China’s working systems. From the lower-class labourers and factory workers to the financial elite. The film reveals the intricate pyramid that keeps China’s wealthy at the top and poor at the bottom. 10 wins and 25 nominations international film festivals.
