Description

在中國人民的心中,北京是一座人均年所得GDP超過三十萬的現代城市。這座古老的城市也蘊含了大中華的歷史與文化,已經乾淨的街道與公園美景。但它真的如表面上一樣的乾淨無暇嗎?或者說,兩千萬的北京市民們,每日所生產的廢棄物都到哪裡去了呢?這是我們想知道的。 《塑料王國》導演王久良的處女之作,透過鏡頭探討北京周邊衛星城市如何消化大量的中國廢棄物,已經那被垃圾所包圍的「北京」。 Beijing Besied by Waste was first published in June 2010. A film by Jiu-liang Wang. While China’s rise, and its immense challenges, commands world attention, less light has been shed upon the colossal problem of waste generated by a burgeoning population, expanding industry, and rapacious urban trough. Photographer Jiu-liang Wang turns his lens upon the grim spectacle of garbage, excrement, refuse, and wreckage heaped upon the landscape that surrounds China’s mega-metropolis, Beijing. Eking out a hazardous living within are the scavengers, mostly rural migrants, who struggle to maintain familial and cultural structures amid the bleakest of occupations. Wang shows the desecration of one-vital farmlands and rivers in the shadow of China’s gleaming cities and planes and super-trains; the unholy cycle of construction’s consumption and waste, and poignant images of the daily lives of scavengers who toll at their own peril.
