Living with Shame

Vivere con vergogna
by Huaqing Jin Documentary Cina/China 2007 25'

The drama of poverty in one of the world's fastest growing economies. Every year China imports 6 million tons of scrap metal and electric waste for recycling. Thus begins the disaster of Fenjinang, once a pleasant town in southeast China, today an open dumping site with innumerable workshops and barracks, and thousands of migrant workers fleeing rural poverty. The workers are kept under slave conditions, with long hours and appalling public health conditions, occupational hazards and risks of intoxication from contaminated air and water.
