Event Details

Join us for a brown bag lunch and film screening. Bring your lunch, watch a documentary and, if you have time, stay and share your thoughts.

High Tech, Low Life follows two of China’s first citizen-reporters as they document the underside of the country’s rapid economic development. A search for truth and fame inspires young vegetable seller “Zola” to report on censored news stories from the cities, while retired businessman “Tiger Temple” makes sense of the past by chronicling the struggles of rural villagers. Land grabs, pollution, rising poverty, local corruption and the growing willingness of ordinary people to speak out are grist for these two bloggers who navigate China’s evolving censorship regulations and challenge the boundaries of free speech. 

A co-production of ITVS and the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM). A co-presentation with CAAM.
