Made in China

Directed by Jean-Yves Cauchard

The film's story of a typical migrant couple is one of millions now unfolding among the multitude of migrants from rural China who comprise the backbone of the Chinese economic miracle. This massive dislocation of people might well represent the largest, most rapid migration in human history. The film depicts how a single generation is experiencing the culture shock of an Industrial Revolution that took centuries in the West. An elegy to a lost way of life and a grassroots view of what could become the most powerful economic power on earth, the film offers a human dimension to the ubiquitous label "Made in China."
