The Concrete Revolution
Award-winning filmmaker Xiaolu Guo examines the enormous moral and human cost of creating a "New China" for the 2008 Olympics. Blending social commentary, frank interviews, and evocative imagery, the viewer is to ponder who really benefits from the endless construction taking place in Beijing. As traditional communities are bulldozed to make way for modern high-rise appartment buildings and ancient traditions are cast aside aside at the expense of about one million poor laborers from villages, the film asks how far will China go to sacrefice its traditional way of life for this new Western version? Thought -provoking and controversial, The Concrete Revolution offers and rare, first-hand survey of China in the 21st century.
