“China: Beyond the Great Wall” documents adventure filmmaker and author Karin Muller’s journey as she traveled on her own through China. She lived with Tibetan nomadic yak herders, Mongolian wrestlers and Buddhist warrior monks and was granted behind-the-scenes access to a traveling opera troop, professional cricket fights and Shanghai’s dating market.

Muller tells the story of China’s transformation from an agrarian nation to a booming economic empire, and its unexpected side effects, through the eyes of the Chinese. From Chinese businessmen and farmers to domestic workers and line-dancing matriarchs, the stories told in “China: Beyond the Great Wall” reveal to the western world the many facets of this important nation.

The film is presented by the Wisconsin Union Theater’s Performing Arts Committee. This film was supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
