India and China together are nearly a third of humanity. Their contemporary achievements in building advanced societies are unprecedented in their long, illustrious histories, and are of dramatic consequence for the world community. One has rocketed into a global powerhouse and the other is on the launchpad and taking off. One is the largest one-party governed nation and the other the largest democracy.

Are they destined to compete like the imperial powers of the past? Or will they share the limelight as a new nexus of global power, bringing distinctive energies, cultures and values to the fore in a world that, for centuries, has been dominated by the West?

These and other questions of epic importance are at the heart of To the Mountaintops – a new educational documentary from CITIZENARTS.
