Mardi Gras: Made in China

leave a comment »

I wanted to throw up a quick recommendation for a great recent documentary on the realities of exploitation in global capitalism, Mardi Gras: Made in China, which seeks to answer one simple question: Where do Mardi Gras beads come from? Even for someone who pays attention to this stuff, it’s eye-opening.

There’s now a timely follow-up: Kamp Katrina.
