FRONTLINE presents Young & Restless in China
Originally Broadcast Tuesday, June 17, 2008, from 9 to 11 P.M. ET on PBS
In Young & Restless in China FRONTLINE presents intimate portraits of nine young Chinese over the course of four years, examining the reality of their lives as they navigate their way through a country that is changing daily. They are westernized, savvy about today’s interconnected world, ambitious – and often torn between their culture and their aspirations. Set to an original soundtrack of Chinese rock and hip-hop music, this provocative film presents an in-depth look at what it means to be young and Chinese today.
