The Crouching Tiger Documentary Film Series
In the Crouching Tiger documentary film series, director Peter Navarro relies on a stellar cast of experts to explain what China’s rapid military buildup and increasingly aggressive behavior means for the world. As with the companion book, the film is presented as a “geopolitical detective story” designed to engage viewers in the solution of this mystery: will there be war with China?
The first two episodes assess China’s rapid military buildup – it’s missiles, mines, and submarines together with its advanced cyber- and space-based warfare capabilities.
The next four episodes examine possible triggers for war, including the “wild card” and “wild child” of North Korea, China’s increasingly contentious dispute with Japan over the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, China’s equally acrimonious fights with the Philippines and Vietnam over oil, fish and territory in the South China Sea, and the perennial thorn in US-China relations – the island democracy and alleged “renegade province” of Taiwan. The documentary film series concludes with episodes that first soberly assess the unthinkable – an actual war with China – and then explore possible pathways to peace.
