Shot clandestinely in a Chinese blue jeans factory, China Blue exposes the harsh conditions often suffered by overseas workers who make many of the clothes we buy.

Cosponsored by ONE Campaign Columbus.

The film examines the conditions in one factory, illustrating how international standards are often ignored by some manufacturers in order to meet deadlines and to keep prices low. The film is filled with poignant moments involving the factory's largely female workers as they struggle to remain hopeful about their futures. (86 mins, video)
