Zhao Liang and the South-North Water Diversion Project
We’re lucky to have an incredible lineup of guests. Joining Kaiser Kuo in our studio this week is Edward Wong from The New York Times, whose recent profile of independent filmmaker Zhao Liang sets the stage for our discussion today. Kathleen McLaughlin from the GlobalPost is also here, fresh back in Beijing from a trip to Shaanxi to investigate the state of China’s plans to redirect southern water to the country’s parched north. We are also lucky to be joined by Sinica-stalwart Will Moss of Imagethief fame.
