Animation — Bo Xilai For Beginners

Our dear readers can be forgiven for thinking that Chinese politics is complicated. When it comes to the epic fall of Bo Xilai–covered extensively by Tea Leaf Nation (see our most recent posts here and here)–the uninitiated may feel that it’s too late to jump in. 

Not so. The good people at Taipei-based Next Media Animation have created a punchy and humorous animated take on Bo’s ouster, with subtitles in English and Chinese. Although it can’t (and doesn’t try to) provide a holistic summary of this sordid skullduggery, it will likely be instructive to newcomers and amusing to veterans. Enjoy.
