Have you watched Under the Dome yet? I’m not talking about the TV adaptation of Stephen King’s novel of the same name. I’m talking about the documentary released last month about China’s cataclysmic air pollution that generated more than 200 million views on Chinese websites within days of its release before the government ordered that it be removed from the Internet (you can watch it with English subtitles here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6X2uwlQGQM).
The TED Talk-style documentary was made by Chai Jing, a former investigative journalist for China Central Television, a state network.
