  • 1972 ----- color ----- 58 min ----- vhs
  • (Note di viaggio in 3 parti Di Michelangelo Antonioni; directed and narrated by Michelangelo Antonioni; produced by RAI--Radiotelevisione Italiana) During his five week stay Antonioni says that "We have just wanted to get a picture of China, we can't offer more." As hard as he tried to stay neutral politically, the Chinese, in the midst of The Cultural Revolution, were not pleased with the end result of the film. Antonioni was aware of the repression in the country and could not avoid showing it. Here he travels to Shanghai to film the port and the industries. The film ends with a presentation by Chinese acrobats.
