|Synopsis||Through the eyes of those who handle its refuse, Plastic China examines global consumption and culture. Plastic China brings us into the lives of a community/culture barely heard from who toil daily in waste from around the globe - washing, cleaning and recycling the plastic garbage - and still living in poverty, yet harnessing the same dreams of education, good health and upward mobility as everyone else. This is not the China we see on TV.|
