Marcuse, Gary. Waking the Green Tiger. Canada: coop99, Farbfilm Verleih, 2011. HDcam, 78 min.

Waking the Green Tiger documents the rise of a green movement in China, as farmers and activists join together to oppose a massive dam project on the Upper Yangtze River. This dramatic story is told against a background of eyewitness accounts—and extraordinary archival footage—describing an earlier era under Chairman Mao when the masses were mobilized to conquer nature in the name of progress.
