The producer of Documentary 『Deng Xiaoping』 can utilize his archives of many interviews, screens of materials and documents and those materials are being a good report of his whole life as a political leader.
Though they are attempting humane approach, because that the documentary is proceeded with explanations of narration on his works and the recollections about his achievements, which are remembered by the interviewee, most of them, regardless of their rank, are the people who had the relations with him in the past works, it gives us somewhat sturdy feelings as we are seeing news on Deng Xiaoping.
On the other hand, 『Deng Xiaoping of 100years』 has collected not only appreciations and recollections on Deng Xiaoping as a politician from the diplomats, officers, reporters, college students, publishers, but remembered him introducing humane episodes in his everyday life experienced by his family, family members of neighbor leaders, cooks, crews, nurses of his private train, house manager, barber, etc.
『Deng Xiaoping in historical turn』 naturally made a display of Xi Zhongxun, the father of Xi Jinping as one of the important people who had leaded the reform in the years of Deng Xiaoping with him and it looks an association of ideas that Xi Jinping is the very people to carry on his family line and expand China’s reform and opening up.
Those documentaries could be understood as a way of cultural politics through media to acquire the support of people and the future rule and policy strongly embossing Deng Xiaoping’s affirmative side, to remind communist achievements through reform and opening up, Aside from his put down of 6.4 Tiananmen riot, Deng Xiaopingas a Chinese leader advocating ‘socialism’, could not escape from the critics that he made a reform assuming regional inequality, especially social unfairness such as farmers registration followed by duality of agriculture and urban community.
None the less, the reality that the Chinese Communist attached only to beautifying and utilizing him for activating culture politics breed a matter of concern that it is a circumstantial evidence that they are lack of will to solve the difficulties left with the Chinese society by deep reflection and analysis.
