The company is well known for its award winning documentaries about China: CHINA – A Century of Revolution, China in the Red, Young & Restless in China. Ambrica has also produced critically acclaimed biographies of iconic American women – Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary Pickford – for the PBS series American Experience.
The company’s most recent film Death By Design is a feature documentary, filmed partly in China, which investigates the secretive world of the electronics industry and reveals the unforeseen consequences of our addiction to our digital devices.
