Video: 24 City - Movie Trailer
A movie for anyone interested in China and the consequences of rapid development. A factory is demolished, like so many others, to make way for condos. Workers and their families are overlooked and displaced from their long time homes and facing the challenges of finding new work. This is one story that echos across the country, affecting millions of people. Unfortunately this side of China's economic success and architectural growth is overshadowed by the flashy building designed by the global starchitects. Check out the preview, hunt down the full film. It's well worth it.
