China’s Li River, or Lijiang, is one of the world’s most mystical rivers and certainly among the most picturesque—a perennial source of inspiration for Chinese poets and painters alike. This program highlights the ancient form of cormorant fishing, closely linked to the history of the river where fishermen fish with cormorant birds as their living tools and companions. Locals celebrate the Fishing Lantern Festival with a procession of Chinese lanterns on bamboo rafts driven by cormorant fishermen, culminating in an elaborate fireworks display.
