Film: Mysteries of China 3D

Mysteries of Ancient China captures one of the great archaeological events in modern times, telling the story of ancient China, the First Emperor, and the literal foundation of the China we know today. Starting with modern China and springing back as we seek the birth of this mighty nation, we talk of 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.

It happened in 1974, when farmers, digging a well in Xi'an, stumbled upon one of the greatest archaeological finds the world had ever discovered - the Terracotta Warriors and the Tomb of the First Emperor. The Terracotta Warriors offer a unique time capsule into the past, revealing many things about the very founding of 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.
