GUANGZHOU DREAM FACTORY

A documentary film by Christiane Badgley and Erica Marcus

Co-sponsored by the East Asian Studies program and the department of African & African-American Studies

Every year more than half a million Africans travel to Guangzhou where they buy goods to sell back in Africa. Over time, some have chosen to stay, and for these Africans China looks like the new land of opportunity, a place where anything is possible. But is it?
