Playing the China Card

Show Summary

Playing the China Card is a gripping documentary from TVF International. The documentary covers rocky international relations between former president Nixon and Chinese Communist Party leader Mao. The documentary covers the critical foreign policy maneuvering of the Nixon administration prior to the Watergate scandal, which would finally bring down Nixon. The President's groundbreaking visit to China came at the start of his re-election year, and was almost a disaster for him. The documentary is directed by Michael Simkin. Lasting a satisfying 56 minutes, Simkin's documentary provides a fascinating look into a troubling time in American history. The documentary has vintage footage from the bygone era allowing the viewer to effectively place themselves into the reality of the Nixon era. Starting from Nixon's early political career, Playing the China Card follows the evolution of Nixon's relationship with China as his development of political thought and process culminating in his dramatic policy reversal.
