China | 2016 | 82 min | Chinese | Jiu-Liang Wang 

China is the world’s largest importer of plastic waste; throughout the country there are nearly 30 towns engaged in processing this refuse in highly toxic environments. In this powerful critique of global overconsumption, the stories of two families, and a particularly feisty and optimistic Yi-Jie, the 11-year-old girl who works alongside her parents in a recycling facility while dreaming of attending school, reveal the human and environmental costs of living and working in these artificial—and truly plastic—landscapes.
