Mysteries of China captures one of the great archaeological events of the modern age, telling the story of ancient China, the First Emperor, and the literal foundation of the China we know today. Through the lens of this groundbreaking discovery, we explore an ancient time when a fierce warrior brought together a warring nation and how an accidental discovery changed everything we know about China’s past.
The discovery of the Terracotta Warriors and the Tomb of the First Emperor offers a unique time capsule into the past, revealing many things about this great country, which we use to tell a larger story of the growth of China into a true superpower. From modern China to ancient China and back again, the film is a visual adventure, using beautiful aerial photography and cutting-edge time-lapse techniques to reveal great majesty, tragedy, splendor and growth in a nation that continues to excel quickly into the future.
