Storyline

40 times more valuable than gold, Jade is found in the dried-up Yurungkash riverbed in China's remote desert region of Xinjiang. Partly observational, partly impressionistic and filmed covertly, China's Wild West describes a day in the life of the Muslim community hoping to strike it rich. Eschewing politics, it portrays the lives, hopes and expectations of a group of simple, spiritual people who - in more ways than might first be obvious - represent us all. Written by Michael Riley
