Filming Chinese Marxism

In preparation for the MOOC on Chinese Marxism, I had  a Chines film crew over October and November of last year. We filmed in Beijing, but especially at the major sites of the Chinese Revolution: Shaoshan, Ruijin and Yan’an. I was even able to sit at the desk in Mao’s room in both Ruijin and Yan’an, where the seeds of modern China were sown.

  1. I was wondering, will the class at least touch on some of the more controversial and troubling points of Chinese communist history like the Sino-Soviet split, the Cultural Revolution, the Gang of Four and the Nixon detente?

    Don’t get me wrong, I am totally in China’s corner, but I would like to know more about the setbacks and mistakes as well as the successes of Chinese communism.
