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. Shot clandestinely in China under severe conditions, this is a deep-access account of what both China and the international retail companies don't want us to see--how the clothes we buy are actually made. 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."

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
