Greg Reynolds History 6B 11 May 2009 The Four Sections of China 21 China 21 gives the stories of a number of different family types living in modern China. This movie gives its viewers an interesting picture of the influences of Maoist China and the post-Mao reform on different segments of the Chinese population. China 21 gives an interesting look on how the trials and turmoil of Maoist China and especially the Cultural Revolution still have a significant legacy in the lives of many Chinese people, creating a generation gap that is noticeable in all levels of their society. In the rural family, subsistence level living is portrayed as the normal, the family must work as hard as possible to even send their children to school and eat. Communist reform has done little to help these families break out of the cycle of poverty that afflicts them. In this family there is a significant emphasis on getting the child educated so that she might be able to break out and have a more comfortable life.
