The 29th International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam – Special Jury Award for First Appearance

As the world’s biggest plastic waste importer, China receives ten million tons per year from most of the developed countries around the world. This film explores how recycling plastic waste impacts not only on people’s health, but also on people’s own dilemma of poverty, disease, pollution, and death.

Yijie, an 11-year-old girl, works alongside her parents in a recycling facility while dreaming of attending school. As much as her life is poor and distorted, she is a truly global child who learns the outside world from the waste workshop that her family lives in and works in – also known as the “United Nations of Plastic Wastes.” Kun, the facility’s ambitious foreman, dreams of a better life. He works day and night and ignores the physical and mental health problems of his own family. Following these families’ daily lives, Plastic China explores how this work of recycling plastic waste takes a toll not only on their health but also their own dilemma of poverty, disease, pollution, and death.
