Jia Zhangke (2008)
Shot in Chengdu, the film chronicles the dramatic fall of a factory and its conversion into luxury apartments.
Weaving together fiction and documentary, the widely acclaimed director tells the story of three generations of factory workers, their personal sacrifices and aspirations.
The focus on one worker's story becomes emblematic of China's history of the last 50 years; the film is in Chinese with optional English subtitles.
