Everyone waited for it to be taken down. 150 million views later, it's still up. Watch it here.
I first heard about the documentary on Saturday morning. As usual, I was awoken by one of my children crawling into our bed. It was my older daughter, who brought a book and curled up under the covers. Being the digital addict that I am, I groggily turned on my phone, and something strange was happening — a bunch of people were talking about a documentary, "Under the Dome," that had just been released in China. Within 24 hours of its release, it had over 100 million views online. Over the weekend, it had over 150 million views. But here's the really crazy thing — it might have just changed the game when it comes to China's relationship with the environment. Everyone in China, from government officials to concerned parents, was watching it. I emailed a friend of mine in China. In a country where government censorship shuts down critical voices, how did former journalist Chai Jing break through to reach over 100 million people? Absolutely heartbreaking. Her unborn daughter already had a tumor.
