China-focused dutch documentary filmmaker Ruben Terlou has released his fourth series "The World of the Chinese" in which he travels places where large communities of chinese reside abroad to make a living e.g. in huge chinese infrastructure projects sold to foreign countries. Super interesting and tells a lot about global development through very personal and touching stories.

It's presently available to stream on ARTE in french ( and german (, and possibly elsewhere that I don't know of. :) Warmly recommended!

@rra ah awesome thanks! I have a little bit of FOMO now because length-wise there seem to be some 15mins from each episode missing in the de/fr adaptations produced for ARTE. Damn I really ought to have kept up the dutch lessons on duolingo! :D
