West Coast Premiere!

We the Workers (2017)

An ideal fusion of direct cinema with the activist praxis of direct action, Wen Hai’s We the Workers brings us as close as possible to the conditions of Chinese factory workers who are struggling to build a new labor movement in China. Over the course of this immersive documentary, activists build workers’ coalitions, all the while evading police surveillance and suppression.

DCP, color, in Mandarin with English subtitles, 174 min. Director: Wen Hai.

Made possible with support from the UCLA Center for Chinese Studies.
