The River Runs Back

Řeka teče zpátky

For thousands of years Beijing depended on the Yongding River, but for the last decade the river has been dry. Beijing’s government is spending the equivalent of over 2.5 billion US dollars to create a manicured landscape of lakes and parkland along the river. “The River Runs Back” takes an inside look at the development debate.
