China in the 21st century: a factory cranks out Trump merchandise by the second; a worker in a sex doll manufacturing plant paints nipples red; and on a practice course salespeople get trained about how many teeth are appropriate to show on a smile (eight!). Jessica Kingdon’s documentary award winner at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York shows a slice of life from Chinese work and living spaces – from simple laborers to rich people with Western lifestyles. A film full of baffling images that stay with you for a long time.
