China Blue
Micha X. Peled. 2005. 88 min. (U.S./China) NY Premiere

China Blue takes us inside a blue jeans factory in Southern China, where we follow the lives of Jasmine and her friends, young working girls struggling to fulfill the impossible obligations forced upon them by the factory's owner. The complexities of globalization are brought to a human level through these moving portraits of the young workers who make our clothes.

Shooting Under Fire
Sacha Mirzoeff. 2005. 72 min. (Germany/Israel/Palestine)

Please join us for a 6:00PM potluck (bring something to share!) and discussion with Brandon Jourdan, NYC Indymedia.

Modern warfare is carried out both on the battlefield and in the media. More and more, we rely on journalists and photographers to provide us with unbiased access to events as they happen. Shooting Under Fire introduces Reinhard Krause, head of the Reuters photo bureau in the West Bank and Gaza, and his team of local Israeli and Palestinian photographers, who cover both sides of the Israeli conflict. This riveting film highlights the individuals who risk their lives to bring us the pictures.
