Bitter Money

Ku Qian

An insight into the grindingly dull everyday life of low-income workers in China’s garment industry, most of them migrants and minors. Trapped in a relentlessly hopeless existence, these “invisible” people waste their lives in horrid working conditions, systematically exploited, crushed by the forces of a powerful impersonal mechanism. An unsettling documentary that captures boldly images of a cruel reality, a raw testament to human spirit in the brutal face of social injustice.
