Alessandro Nivola stars in this new television adaptation of Lucy Kirkwood’s play.

Nivola stars as Lee Berger, a photojournalist who 30 years ago was responsible for taking the iconic image of the student protestor blocking the tanks in Tiananmen Square. His career has since floundered, but then he meets a friend who makes him wonder if the man who blocked the tanks might still be alive.

Thus he begins to try and find this man in order to revive his career.

Chimerica is on Channel 4 at 21.00, with the rest of the series released on All4 afterwards.
