Last month as part of the Chinese President Hu Jintao’s state visit to the USA, a short film was released by the Chinese Government to promote the Middle Kingdom to the world.
The film aimed to target Western stereotypes of the country. Whether it worked is still up for debate.
Now, Jacky Weng, a young Chinese Marketing student living in the UK has created his own short documentary titled, “Chinese in Foreigners’ Eyes” (外國人眼中的中國人) to illustrate how China truly is perceived by the rest of the world:
The views and opinions in the documentary are quite fascinating, and occasionally somewhat controversial. Most of the people featured are international students, but some are working. Jacky hopes that the video will help change people’s views of the country.
