Hollywood Reporter | The movie about the early years of “The Great Helmsman” has a $4.9 million budget and will be screened as part of celebrations marking the 120th anniversary of the leader’s birth in December.
Mao Zedong’s face already adorns every bank note, and a portrait of “the Great Helmsman” continues to grace the gates of the Forbidden City in the heart of the country’s capital, Beijing. Now China’s founding father is set to feature in an animated film about his teenage years.
The cartoon is being made to help propaganda efforts to boost Mao’s image.
