24 City – Chinese badminton

24 City (2008), a documentary by Jia Zhang-ke,
Follows the Chinese workers from the Factory 420 specialized on military aircraft. The stories, told by the people, who emerge from the masses of uniformed bodies, create an astonishing picture of hardship and difficulties that reaches the point of incredibility. One could hardly invent more overwhelming and painful tales.
The workers, although distant and beyond the reach of our imagination, reveal the sample of the immense suffering of the Chinese people, otherwise impossible to comprehend.
