The Passion of the Mao (2006)
Mao Zedong is one of the most complicated men in the last 100 years of International Politics. The documentary makes no attempt to say that they’re painting a complete portrait. The Passion of the Mao wants you to see why Mao’s work was for the betterment of the Chinese people.

This madcap documentary re-examines the Cultural Revolution and restores the once bright reputation of Mao Zedong.

Unlike those insufferably tedious educational films we all sat through in history class, The Passion of the Mao brings an added dimension to the face in the history books, and breathes new life into that waxen cadaver that lies in Tiananmen Square.

The disc also contains a hidden extra documentary made in 1993 by China's "Central News and Documentary Production Company" to celebrate the centenary of Mao's birth. Even if you can't speak Mandarin, it's still worth a look because it contains much interesting footage from China's archives.

The extra "Easter Egg" documentary is accessible by clicking on Mao's forehead on the main menu screen.
