YesAsia Editorial Description

Beijing Besieged by Waste (2012)
Director Wang Jiulang exposes the problem of trash and waste in China in the eye-opening documentary Beijing Besieged by Waste. Through simple and staggering images of mountainous landfills, trash dumps and polluted waters, the documentary shows the grave, flagrant consequences of rapid development, overconsumption and irresponsible waste disposal.

Plastic China (2016)
Following 2012's Beijing Besieged by Waste, director Wang Jiulang continues to explore and expose China's trash problem in Plastic China. This documentary shines a light on trash imported from other countries and the people who scratch out a living on this plastic waste. For years, China has taken in much of the world's recyclable plastic waste, which then gets processed in factories in poor towns. Plastic China looks at one such plastics recycling factory and an impoverished family that works there, including an 11-year-old girl who must spend her days sorting plastic instead of going to school.

Product Information

Plastic China (2016)
This film tells a story about an unschooled 11-year-old girl Yi-Jie, she's a truly global child who learns the world through the United Nations of Wastes while working with her YI minority parents in this recycle workshop thousand miles away from their mountain village home town. Going to school is all she longing for. And the ambi­tious boss of the workshop Kun, who works so hard for trying to give his family a better life. Through the story of these two families, the film explores how these wastes recycled by the bare hands of families, and discovers their dilemma and choices of suffering irreversible damages on life just to make a living. It also observes that the world is flat and issues don't go away by changing time and location - we're all in this together.

Beijing Besieged By Waste (2012)
Beijing Besieged by Waste was first published in June 2010. A film by Wong Jiu Leung.

While China's rise, and its immense challenges, commands world attention, less light has been shed upon the colossal problem of waste generated by a burgeoning population, expanding industry, and rapacious urban growth. Photographer Wang Jiuliang turns his lens upon the grim spectacle of garbage, excrement, refuse, and wreckage heaped upon the landscape that surrounds China's mega-metropolis, Beijing. Eking out a hazardous living within are the scavengers, mostly rural migrants, who struggle to maintain familial and cultural structures amid the bleakest of occupations. Wang shows the desecration of once-vital farmlands and rivers in the shadow of China's gleaming cities and planes and super-trains; the unholy cycle of construction's consumption and waste, and poignant images of the daily lives of scavengers who toil at their own peril.
