Summary This film documents a plastic recycling facility in a small town dedicated to the business of processing plastic waste. The facility is operated by two families: the family of the owner and a family of employees. Eleven-year-old Yi-Jie works alongside her parents while dreaming of attending school. Kun, the facility's ambitious foreman, hopes for a better life. PLASTIC CHINA examines global consumption and culture through the eyes and hands of those who handle its refuse. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize World Cinema - Documentary at the **Sundance Film Festival**. Nominated for Best Editing at the **Golden Horse Film Festival**. "*PLASTIC CHINA reflects the harsh reality of the nation's economic development through the conditions of two families at a waste recycling facility, the great material, physical, and psychological price they pay, their aspirations toward wealth, and their complete disregard for individual quality of life.*" - ***Ai Weiwei***
