This is a somewhat interesting film about children in the early years of the Cultural Revolution. One can say it is propaganda; it probably actually isn’t since it’s not a Chinese government production, though it certainly had approval from the government. But even if you want to think of it as propaganda, it still has value for us today as a historical document about some aspects of life for young people at that time, from sports to the emphasis on producing for the state to the move toward having urban people work in the villages on harvesting grain.
