Poetry, painting, music, … Those Chinese artistic disciplines embrace a comprehensive representation of space, a concept of key importance for Chinese people. The documentary is digging into the core meaning and concept of a « Chinese garden », which go way beyond the simple green space with a pavilion and a bridge over the water. The whole process of garden creation, intertwined with historical facts, is explained here. By integrating key values such as the Chinese people’s spirit, the optimization of the living environment and the balance of the landscape, Chinese gardens are surely unique and tell us again how important it is to strike a balance between man and nature.
