“Under the Dome” (original in Chinese: 穹顶之下), is former CCTV news anchor Chai Jing‘s powerful, self-funded documentary about smog in China. The 104-minute video has swept the Chinese Internet, receiving over 150 million views within one week of its release, and being compared to Rachel Carlson’s Silent Spring and Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

MESYM’s Documentary Night is held every 2nd Tuesday of each month.Members of the public are invited to hang out, watch a documentary, meet like-minded friends and take part in the discussion. The post-documentary discussion for this session will be led by Dr. Helena Varkkey, Senior Lecturer at the University of Malaya.
