Summary "Located in the southwest of China, Yunnan province is home to more ethnic minorities than any other region of the country. This program examines several Yunnan-based societies and aspects of their cultures. The Sani community is found near the stone forest of Shilin, an astonishing example of karst geography and the site of a massive annual Torch Festival. In Yuanyang, the Hani people are the creators of a sophisticated irrigation system known as the Steps to Heaven. Dali, capital of the ancient Bai kingdom, features towers rising high above the city gates and the largest Buddhist temple complex in China. And the 800-year-old city center of Lijiang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to numerous artisans and pictographic calligraphers. Part of the series Journeys to Art: China."--Films Media Group website.
