31st Istanbul film festival to feature ‘China Blue’
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsMicha X. Peled’s “Globalization Trilogy: China Blue” will be screened at 11 a.m. on April 7 at Beyoğlu Cinema as part of 31st Istanbul Film Festival.
“China Blue” is a heartbreaking and moving film that explores the manufacturing stage, one of the layers in the production-consumption chain. “China Blue” takes viewers inside a blue-jeans factory, where Jasmine, Orchid and Li Ping are trying to survive the harsh working environment. Their lives intersect with that of the factory owner, Mr. Lam. Providing perspectives from both the top and bottom levels of the factory’s hierarchy, the film was shot clandestinely in China to reveal what both China and the international retail companies don’t want people to see – how the clothes people buy are actually made.
