Micha X. Peled

CHINA BLUE

Presented at:
Hallwalls

(2005, 86 min.)
Micha X. Peled's China Blue is a powerful and poignant journey into the harsh world of sweatshop workers in China.

Winner of the Amnesty International Human Rights Award at International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, the Boston Phoenix calls China Blue "a heartbreaking, truly unforgettable cinéma-vérité."
