|The DVD set given as state gifts to Argentina and Brazil A scene from Beijing Youth starring (from left) Du Chun puma basket heart australia , He Gang, Ren Zhong and Li Chen However small they may be, state gifts have the grandiose task of representing the attitude and diplomatic intentions of the leaders of a country when they visit or receive their foreign counterparts. During his recently concluded visit to four Latin American countries, Chinese President Xi Jinping presented small tokens of China's friendship to the leaders of these countries. Interestingly enough, the gifts given to the leaders of Argentina and Brazil ended up becoming the center of media attention; not because of their rarity or value, but because of what they were.
Consisting of one film and two TV series fenty puma slippers australia , a set of DVDs appeared among the state gifts Xi presented to Argentina and Brazil. Compared to the typical gifts of porcelain, tea and the occasional panda, gifts traditionally seen as best representing Chinese culture, this new DVD set was certainly a breath of fresh air.
Youth, age and love
TV series Beijing Youth (2011) and To Elderly with Love (2012) - directed by Zhao Baogang, one of China's most influential soap opera directors - along with the domestic film Love is Not Blind (2011) are all familiar names among audiences in China. Each focusing on different current social issues puma creepers velvet australia , Beijing Youth and Love is Not Blind mainly examine the concerns young people have about life, work and love in China today, while To Elderly with Love deals with issues related to the country's aging population.
"We received a notice from relevant agencies in late June asking us to select several film and TV works that President Xi could give to those Latin American countries," said Ling Di, brand department manager for Perfect World Pictures - the producer of the three above works. "We chose dozens of works for them to select from," he added. A leading domestic TV drama producer puma creepers blue australia , Perfect World produces about 10 percent of the country's annual TV series.
Including Chinese, English, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles, Ling explained that it took about two weeks to translate all three works. "We believe the final selection of these three works was based on their realistic reflection of current Chinese society," Ling told the Global Times.
Considering the different broadcasting formats in Latin American countries, two different editions were produced with each including about 100 DVDs; one for the national TV stations in Brazil and Argentina and the other edition for home DVD players.
"My work was once given as a present to foreign guests by an official at the vice premier level puma creepers green australia , but this time it was presented by the president himself!" said Zhao Baogang, who didn't know that his works had been given as diplomatic gifts until he read it in media headlines.
The three works' familiarity among audiences in China, added to the status of being given by the country's top leader has caused quite a stir. However, this is actually not the first time TV and film works were given as state gifts.
In March 2013, when President Xi paid a visit to Tanzania, he mentioned in his speech that the popularity of Chinese TV drama Beautiful Daughter-in-Law in the African country offered a new channel for the Tanzanian people to learn about the lives of ordinary Chinese people. "In May puma creepers purple australia , when Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao paid a visit to Russia, he also brought a set of DVDs including the popular TV drama Let's Get Married! as a gift to foreign leaders," Ling explained.
It's not just Chinese dramas that are making their way overseas, shows from other countries have also been acting as ambassadors of culture. During President Xi's visit to South Korea in early July, his wife Peng Liyuan mentioned two South Korean dramas The Great Jang-Geum and You Who Came from the Star, two shows that created huge waves of popularity among young audiences in China when they were broadcast.
"I felt like I was in a scene from The Great Jang-Geum puma creepers grey australia ," Peng said when she visited the Changdeokgung, the South Korean "Forbidden City" where the story in the TV drama was set.
Even earlier, when Premier Li Keqiang visited Thailand in October last year, he also talked about the huge popularity of the Chinese film Lost In Thailand which set a record for small-budget Chinese films and was partly filmed in the country. "I'm not advertising this film, but the friendship between China and Thailand," he explained.
"I think this is a signal that the new government is putting more emphasis on modern Chinese culture puma creepers brown australia ," said Zhao. "Those works reveal social problems and can show the world the real China and the lives of its people."
Different gifts, different diplomacy
An old Chinese saying goes "Courtesy demands reciprocity," which means that well-mannered people should return favors or kindness. For this reason, for a long time state gifts were selected not just based on their market value, but more often than not because they could transmit the essence of traditional Chinese culture.
The giving of generous gifts has been a habit throughout China's long history. According to Japan's Imperial Annals, during the reign of China's first and only female emperor puma creepers red australia , the Tang Dynasty's (618-907) Wu Zetian, two pandas were sent to the Japanese Emperor Temmu. In later dynasties this generosity continued and has even been used in modern times. From 1957 to 1982, 24 pandas were given as presents to nine countries. This state gift eventually became so influential that it was even given a name: Panda Diplomacy.
Other gifts such as famous paintings and silks or embroideries have also been given as gifts. Small or large, the goal of these presents is to bring relations between two countries c
