For over thirty years, China has been swept up in rapid capitalist development. The “China miracle” has been built on the backs of hundreds of millions of migrant laborers. This film features workers from different provinces spanning two generations who have resisted this force through activist struggle and action.
The November 3 screening includes a Q&A with Huang Wenhai and Zeng Jinyan, moderated by Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director, PEN America. Advance tickets are recommended. Refreshments will be available for purchase in The Wright from 5:15–6:30 pm.
