Mardi Gras: Made in China

Winner of twenty-one national and international awards, Mardi Gras: Made in China follows the path of Mardi Gras beads from the streets of New Orleans during Carnival - where revelers party and exchange beads for nudity - to the disciplined factories in Fuzhou, China - where teenage girls live and sew beads together all day and night. Blending curiosity with comedy, Mardi Gras: Made in China is the only film to explore how the toxic products directly affect the people who both make and consume them.

Shell Shocked [electronic resource]: Growing Up in the Murder Capital of the U.S.A.
