Chai Jing, investigative reporter
Even as a a highly respected and public face of China, Jing faced risk when she created a documentary called “Under The Dome”– a serious and shocking look at the state of China’s smog and pollution problem. A true detective and crusader for truth, the birth of her baby girl motivated her even more to be able to one day answer her daughter’s question: what is smog? and what have we done to create a world that hurts us?
Jing produced the documentary using around 1 million RMB, releasing it for free viewing online. The film is banned in China.
