A Marble Travelogue

Shi Shi Shi

24th TDF: International Premiere

A piece of white marble stone mined in Greece takes us on its Odyssey along the global consumption driven by the Chinese domestic market, to investigate the role of China as the “world’s buyer.” This film follows marble from its homeland to the other side of the world, where it is processed for sale back to the West. As the condition of world commerce constantly shifts and changes, we encounter those whose lives are devoted to the commoditization of things both ancient and new.
