Director Statement

Many people have a misconception about capitalism in China. The CCP(Chinese Communist Party) has known capitalism since 1978 when Deng Xiaoping took the reform and opening route. However, since the end of World War II, the CCP has already tried to attract American capital and technology. And even after China became completely communist, he tried to reassure the capitalists and use their capital and know-how for national development. From the early days of the history of the Communist Party of China, capital has been the object of love, not exclusion. Of course, this attitude of the Communist Party at one time faced considerable domestic backlash, and as a result experienced a tremendous reaction of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. However, the CCP's position that capital and capitalists are essential for the development of the country and people has not fundamentally changed. This series is the first TV documentary in which the essence of the relationship between the CCP and capital is defined as 'symbiosis'.
