"Robert Adanto's "The Rising Tide" shows the world how China's contemporary artists are making sense of their crazy "brave new world", the improbable mash-up of totalitarianism and capitalism gone wild. An often surprising and thought-provoking documentary, the featured artists throw down a collective glove to the rest of the world and declare their Sino-centric Renaissance. The rest of us better make an effort to grasp what their work is about, or get out of the way. An "eye-opener" in every sense of the word." ~ Mark Lynch
