Synopsis by Nathan Southern

The documentary China's Great Wall provides a feature-length exploration of the titular monument, posited in the early 21st Century as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. A structure spanning 6,700 kilometers, so mighty that it can be easily glimpsed in low extraterrestrial orbit, the Wall reportedly claimed the lives of 2-3 million Chinese over the many centuries required to complete it. This program places a dual emphasis on the myths and legends surrounding the structure and the technical feat that it represents, areas explored via super-advanced CGI, aerial photography and on-camera reenactments.
