THEY RULED 400 MILLION PEOPLE...FROM BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

One of china's most celebrated cinematographers, Zhoa Fei, takes his cameras into the most carefully guarded inner sanctums of the FORBIDDEN CITY. Explore this private world of emperors, concubines, and eunuchs who lived in palaces, with lavish gardens and sacred temples.
