Synopsis

The Yiwu wholesale market in China is more than eight kilometres long. Short episodes follow buyers and the uncompromising negotiations between vendors. The observational documentary shows stalls so covered in goods they completely hide the vendors – and thus also the market’s other world, where their offspring spend their childhoods.

Biography

American director and producer Jessica Kingdon (1986) makes narrative and experimental documentaries. She co-produced the feature-length film Old Stone (2016), which was shown at last year’s Berlinale.
