2022 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE. Nominated for Best Documentary by the Director’s Guild, Producer’s Guild, Independent Spirit Awards, and Gotham Awards, and winner of Best Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, Ascension explores the paradoxical pursuit of wealth and progress in China.
