This docudrama unravels the life and legacy of Confucius for a truly global audience for the first time. Spanning two hours, this film traces his teachings to key moments in his life, from his mythical birth on the sacred Mount Ni through his years wandering across the violent, warring states of pre-imperial China, to the creation of his academy at the end of his life, from which a group of devoted disciples went on to transform the world through his teachings. Along the way, we’ll meet emperors and concubines, eunuchs and unicorns, dashing dukes and dancing girls, coming face to face with not just the myth of Confucius but with the real man.
