A still image, taken from the newly-presented promo film, demonstrates the blending of
Chinese and foreign cultures.

The "Experience China II" promotional film, which focuses on ordinary people at all levels, was displayed to the public on the Internet in China on Jan. 23 and will be officially released soon, the producer said.

The 17-minute long online premiere of "Experience China II" has eight two-minute long themes with a total of more than 800 pictures and encompasses China's economy, politics, society, culture, science, education and environment. The eight themes were: open up in confidence, sustainable growth, shareable development, diversity and common prosperity, freedom and order, authoritative democracy, mutual respect of the poor and the rich and thrift with wealth.

Unlike the previous one that is being shown in Times Square in New York City of the United States, the second promo presented daily lives of ordinary people in all walks of life instead of celebrities and big names.

Migrant workers and their families were seen several times in this promo.

Some private entrepreneurs, including Mayun, Ma Huateng and Li Ning, also made appearance in the film.

It was said that some Chinese Internet users were quite moved after watching the newly-presented promo, while others argued that more vivid details and touching stories were needed to impress audiences.

Zhou Zunnan, the public diplomacy professor of the Foreign Affairs College, said he had his doubts at first but felt relieved after watching this film because he found more than 70 percent of the promo focused on the lives of ordinary people, which, from his point of view "shows the world a real China, and that is the very true meaning of the national promo film."

Zhou said Western countries have tended to misunderstand or even demonize China in the past. This film is able to help foreigners to know a real China in a better way.

It was reported that the "Experience China II" promo will be presented during foreign affairs activities.
