Film screening:
Under the Dome:Air pollution in China
柴静雾霾调查:穹顶之下 同呼吸 共命运



Lecturer: Katja Pessl (University of Göttingen)
Tuesday, 28.05.2019, 6pm (c.t.) – 8 pm, VG 3.104, Göttingen



Under the Dome  is a 2015 self-financed, Chinese documentary film by Chai Jing, a former China Central Television journalist, concerning air pollution in China.
Chai Jing started making the documentary when her as yet unborn daughter developed a tumour in the womb, which had to be removed very soon after her birth. Chai blames air pollution for the tumour. The film, which combines footage of a lecture with interviews and factory visits, has been compared with Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth in both its style and likely impact. The film openly criticises state-owned energy companies, steel producers and coal factories, as well as showing the inability of the Ministry of Environmental Protection to act against the big polluters.
