Disc Two: Last Train Home (2010 • 87 min)

China’s New Year holiday sees the world’s largest human migration, as 130 million migrant workers travel from city to countryside. This acclaimed documentary traces one couple that makes the arduous journey every year.

Disc Three: Up the Yangtze (2008 • 93 min)
Directed by Yung Chang
Chang’s riveting debut documentary traces the bizarre Upstairs, Downstairs life of one “farewell cruise” on the Yangtze River, and the landscape’s dramatic transformation wrought by the Three Gorges Dam project.

Directed by Sue Williams

Disc Five: The World (2005 • 139 min)
Directed by Jia Zhangke
A surreal Beijing amusement park—an actual tourist spot that feels like a combo platter of Vegas and Epcot—is the backdrop for this riveting dramedy from the master filmmaker behind Platform, Still Life and A Touch of Sin.

Disc Six: The Turandot Project (2001 • 84 min)
Directed by Allan Miller
The Oscar-winning documentarian goes behind-the-scenes with filmmaker Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, Hero) and conductor Zubin Mehta for their historic staging of Puccini’s opera Turandot in Beijing’s Forbidden City.
