    A screening of the film Plastic China (China, 2016), followed by conversation, dinner and panel discussion with the awarded filmmaker and photographer Jiu-liang Wang.

    Plastic China follows the members of two families who spend their lives sorting and recycling plastic waste from the United States, Europe, and Asia. Yi-Jie, an 11-year-old girl, works alongside her parents in a recycling facility while dreaming of attending school. Kun, the facility’s ambitious boss, dreams of a better life. Through the story of these two families, this poignant film explores issues of waste recycling, social inequality, as well as global consumption and culture.
