CWR Presents : An Impressionist Account of Water Pollution in China with Allusions to Mel Gibsonís Apocalyto. Other events...
After presenting a brief introduction and overview (based mainly on journalistic and secondary source articles), I rapidly show a succession of mostly web images picturing China's water pollution.

Stills from Mel Gibson's movie Apocalyto are gradually introduced to weave a comparison and contrast from another great civilisation, this one just beyond the peak of its power and about to be invaded by a technologically superior empire. Thoughts about the tendencies and behaviours of the human species are introduced to invite questions about the present and near to medium future.
