Sichuan Province, located in central China, is the most populous of all China’s Provinces. This film follows the route of the Chang Jiang (Yangtze River) as it flows eastwards from the mountainous Qinghai-Tibet Plateau to the fertile Sichuan Basin. The video looks at rice and wheat cultivation, mealtimes in a rural household, a government station where farmers sell their produce, and a rural school. The video also examines the people, commerce and industry of Chongqing, Sichuan’s largest city.
