The working conditions that Jasmine and her teenage friends survive are harsh beyond imagination. They are also unlawful by international standards. CHINA BLUE by Micha X. Peled is a prizewinning documentary that documents conditions at a blue-jeans factory in China. The production of jeans and shirts is a prime example of globalization in the work world. But who is paying the price for the cheap goods streaming from Asia into first world markets? Shot behind factory gates, CHINA BLUE follows Jasmine Li, who left her rural home to work in a jeans factory where work conditions are in violation of international human rights standards. CHINA BLUE is Part 2 of Micha X. Peled's 'Globalization Trilogy'. Part 1 is STORE WARS: WHEN WAL-MART COMES TO TOWN.
