Presented with the China Environment Forum
From rural farms in South Carolina to factory cities in China, the cotton industrial process behind the United Statesв’ rapacious consumption of cheap clothing spans the globe. Cotton Road uncovers the transnational movement of cotton and tells the stories of workersв’ lives in a conventional cotton supply chain. The film explores a contemporary landscape of globalized labor through human stories and provides an opportunity to reflect on the ways our consumption impacts others and drives a global economy. Directed by Laura Kissel. Produced by Laura Kissel and Li Zhen.
