The Warriors Of Qiugang is no longer available to watch for free online (though I doubt many people are paying to watch a short documentary from over ten years ago even if it was nominated for an Oscar). Ruby Yang had already been nominated before with her short documentary, The Blood Of Yingzhou District, which looked at the ostracized AIDS orphans in China, before she made The Warriors Of Qiugang. In the Oscar nominated short films, Yang follows a group of villagers in rural China as they take on a chemical company that is poisoning their land and water. As they fight to transform their environment, they find themselves transformed as well. Yang's filmmaking explores how the new China conflicts with the old.
