Er Shi Si Cheng Ji * Zhang Ke Jia (2008)

Posted in documentary on by .

“24 City” is a highly acclaimed Chinese documentary/film about a wargear factory that has to make room for luxery appartements. Interviewing employers and family, a picture is drawn of a gigantic factory that first moved from one far end of China to another, going downwards when less wars resulted in a drop of demand for products and in the end the factory has to go because the city it helped to grow still needs to become bigger. The interviews are alternated with beautiful images of workers. “24 City” gives a nice insight in a part of Chinese history, but to me it is too much of a documentary.
